Welcome to our second local artist spotlight blog! Araminta Greaves Fibreista is a super talented artist.
When Araminta contacted us enquiring about becoming a stockist, we immediately knew we were on to something very special. Even before we saw the products , we could tell from the images on her facebook page that these were special. Couple this with the fact Araminta is local, this was an opportunity we just could not pass up. Read on to find out more….
Fibreista: “A person devoted to unique and funky fibre arts and crafts.”
Working from her Spinnery in her garden at the foot of Roughtor on the edge of Bodmin Moor, North Cornwall. Araminta loves working with natural fibres through dyeing, spinning, felting and weaving. Her inspiration is drawn from the beautiful moorland and coast of Cornwall.
Araminta aims to bring a funky, modern feel to traditional fibre arts and crafts not only through her own creations but also by producing hand dyed fibres and unique handspun yarns for other spinners, felters and knitters.
Araminta’s yarns are the height of decadence in our humble opinion. We are excited to be offering a range of her products in store. From ready made cowls to a beautiful selection of handspun yarns in various colours and colourful felting wool, there is something for everyone.
Araminta Greaves Fibreista will be joining us in store soon with her spinning wheel to provide a demonstration on how these amazing yarns are spun together. Follow us on Facebook & Instagram to find out more!
