We offer a variety of craft courses as well as alpaca husbandry. Anything is possible, so if you would like something a little different, perhaps for a special occasion or at your own venue, then please just ask.
HUSBANDRY & CRAFT
We offer FREE husbandry training to anyone buying alpacas from us. This isn’t classroom training. It is hands-on, working with our herd. We believe that no amount of classroom training is a substitute for the real thing. We can include information on fleece production, the sustainability of an alpaca business, planning and a whole host more.
Peg Loom Weaving
Spend a relaxing day meeting the herd and learning all about these amazing animals. If weather permits enjoy an al fresco lunch near our Yurt which overlooks the alpaca fields, and spend the rest of the day learning the rustic craft of peg loom weaving. At the end of the day you take away your own 2′ peg-loom, set of carders and enough alpaca fleece to finish the rug you started in class. The finished rug size will be approximately 26″ x 36″.
Wellies and water-proof coats may be necessary (sorry – we can’t help the weather!) and we need to know dietary requirements in advance.
Price: £90 (inc VAT)
Discounts available if you bring 4 friends and make a whole class!
Lunch and refreshments throughout the day
2 foot peg loom
Set of hand carders
Sufficient alpaca fleece to finish a rug
Times: 10am-4pm approximately.
