Transpire Fibre Art Studio

Organisation / Group: Transpire Fibre Art Studio, Gallery: Transpire, Old Cromwell Town, Melmore Terrace, Cromwell, New Zealand 9310

Mellissa Uber-Lopez’ shop and studio occupies the old Cobb & Co Storeroom in the Heritage Precinct in Cromwell.

Here you will find a colourful array of raw fleece  which Mellissa expertly washes, dyes and spins into yarn which can be purchased for your beautiful creations.

The old stone walls hold a crafting practice that is centuries old, yet to walk through the door, one can see the colour and vibrancy of modern taste and colour palates. At Transpire, you have a choice of roving, dyed fleece, hand-dyed and art yarns. If you don’t have time to knit your own winter hat or woollen jersey, leave it to the local knitters, who festoon the shop with their time honored creations.

Mellissa will also teach workshops or private lessons, she will set you up with the skills to begin and continue creating with fiber and because every trade needs their tools, Transpire proudly stands as Central Otago’s dealer of New Zealand made Majacraft spinning wheels,carders and others accessories.  A range of needles, notions and kits are also available to get you started on any number of projects for home or on the road!
