A fantastic day out for the knitter in your life. This experience includes starting a knitting project, fabulous lunch and meeting the alpacas.
A perfect, unusual and ethical gift; knitting, learning, meeting like minded people and all set in our brand new shop on the alpaca farm.
The day starts with choosing your project. By trying on our samples, you can check how it looks before starting your own. Individual attention and expert tuition means the pattern is thoroughly understood and the stitches explained so you can start your garment with confidence and finish it with ease.
A scrumptious lunch is prepared whilst you meet the alpacas and feed them an apple; after this, serious knitting, nattering and stories are told.
LOCATION: Ridgeleys Farm, 163 Caxton End, Bourn, Cambridgeshire, CB23 2ST
DURATION: 10am - 4pm.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
For the workshop, you will need to bring a selection of knitting needles with you and we also ask you to bring shoes you can walk across a field in. If wet weather is forecast, bring a raincoat and hat (but not an umbrella as the alpacas don't like them).
The price includes one of our many designs and the first five balls of yarn; a fresh, tasty lunch made from locally sourced ingredients; constant refreshments and meeting our alpacas.
All levels of ability are catered for and with a maximum of ten places, you are assured of learning something new.
There are two workshops per month and dates need to be booked in advance.
Current dates are: 24th June, 8th & 22nd July, 5th & 19th August
Discover how our field to fashion company works and be inspired by Kari-Helene's designs.
Charlotte said: 'The knitting workshop at Purl Alpaca Designs was a birthday present and I couldn’t have asked for a better gift.'
Aitzie attended our workshop in January 2015; she said: 'It was a fantastic day, the Alpacas were a pure dose of love and happiness! I am still smiling. And the Duchess... my new BFF.... I'm in love!'
You can see Aitzie feeding Duchess an apple, but please note, we can't get the Narnia effect every time!
