Happy Hour: Patternistas

  • Rabble Studio 103 Bute Street Cardiff, Wales, CF10 5AD United Kingdom (map)

Welcome to Happy Hour at Rabble Studio!

Happy hour is our monthly get together where we listen to interesting people, have fun and make new friends. All over a tasty beverage in our friendly and creative work home in Cardiff Bay.


This month we are joined by pattern makers and heart breakers Suzanne & Chris Carpenter AKA Patternistas - a husband and wife team with a shared love of colour and pattern that is a bottomless pot of happiness. At home or abroad, on a bike or on foot, night and day, their life is an intense game of I-spy; peering at ripples in puddles, staring at shadows of trees, rummaging through flea markets, dreaming in doodles.

Collecting, absorbing, recording, creating; patterns have played their part throughout Chris & Suzanne's working lives. The Patternistas is a release valve for the myriad of patterns that have built up in their brains. They will be carrying out controlled explosions. Watch out, a smattering of patterns may soon land on a surface near you.

Join us June for a pattern filled extravaganza... but beware - if your favourite colour is grey - stay away!

As always, we are likely to run out of tickets pretty quickly so make sure to grab yours early!
