Skivvers Fibre Studio & Wool Craft
Skivvers Fibre Studio & Wool Craft is located at 165 Main Street in Cow Head. This new studio has a sign out front to make it easier to find!
About the Studio: Skivvers is a brand new addition to the Cow Head visitor experience, opening in June 2021. The studio is the culmination of years of dreaming and planning and the expression of a lifetime love of wool and knitting. The space is an old home that turned out to be just perfect for a fibre studio, and this summer will see the beginnings of a dyer’s garden developing around the property. Here I’ll be processing and dyeing wool fibre, with an emphasis on natural dyes. In the shop, you will find a variety of my own work as well as that of other talented artisans, with a focus on work that is created from wool.
About the Artist: Artist Veronica Bavis is first and foremost a knitter. She has memories of sitting in the rocking chair with her grandmother, learning to knit, and once she started she just couldn’t stop. This has developed into a desire to learn the whole process, from first wash of a fleece to spinning the fibre into yarn, as well as learning the techniques to use the plants around us to impart a variety of color.
How does Gros Morne inspire your creativity? Those glorious sunsets over Shallow Bay! I’ve always been drawn to color in my knitted work, and those purples/oranges/pinks that come together to make up our sunsets are definitely a creative happy place.
