The world of Alpaca Crafting

I've been busy this summer learning new things, I started like many others with a few e-courses, then one led to an actual physical course (felt like a holiday I can tell you!), and then it was teaching myself to needlefelt using youtube - it's been fun!

With the reopening of our Alpaca Experiences in July we've had SO many wonderful visitors, all keen to learn more about these fabulous animals and their place in our world.

So we've launched new Craft Sessions! Add a craft on to your visit and spend extra time here with the alpacas learning something new yourself.

We've tried to make our first foray into craft offerings as inclusive as possible, with crafts for all ages and all suitable for beginners!

Read on to see what we're offering and then contact me to book!
