We offer a range of craft workshops for adults all year round. During school holidays we run sessions that are in line with the season to help keep younger ones (4 years plus) busy and creative when off school! Please see below for the different workshops we have available at the moment.
Please note: we are no longer doing the term time, mid-week "walk in" sessions.

Needle Felt Gnome Ornament
Gnomes / Gonks are popular all year round. Customise yours with a choice of colours and styles of body / hat. Add hair / beards using fibre from your choice of fibre, including some shorn from the Wolfridge Alpaca herd. The workshop is 2 hours in duration and is suitable for ages 12 and over.
Make a seated Highland Cow, using your choice of fibre for the lustrous coat. Our alpacas provide a great range of natural colours. A variety of techniques will be demonstrated, providing you with the skills to make an adorable 'coo' of your own to take home.
Select your accessory: a zip top bag, tablet slip, pencil case, shopping bag or laptop case. Create your design using either cut-out felt shapes or have a go at needle felting a 2-D design: a flower, animal, your initial, or even an alpaca – perhaps you can recreate your favourite from the Wolfridge Alpaca herd?! The workshop is 1 hour in duration, and is suitable for sticking shapes for 5 and over. If you wish to needle felt, it is suitable for ages 11 and over.
Needle Felted Bee
Make your own needle felted "Queen" bee, complete with a tiny crown! Created entirely from wool using specialist barbed needles, create a happy 3D bee of your very own to take home. These bees are fun way of introducing yourself to the world of needle felting. And of course reminding everyone how important bees are! The workshop is 1 hour in duration and suitable for ages 11 and over.
Wet Felted Book Worms or Pen Covers
Create wet felted bookworms or pen covers in our 1 hour workshop. You will have fun selecting fibre and seeing the magic of the wet felting process as the loose ‘fluff’ gradually rolls in to your worm-like creation! This workshop is up to one hour in duration and is suitable for ages 3 and over (younger participants will need some assistance).
Alpaca Alpaca Ornament
Create your own 3D alpaca using alpaca fibre! A cushing (sitting) alpaca will be covered in the natural alpaca fibre of your choice, and you will sculpt ears and add facial features for a cute cartoony, or more lifelike alpaca to suit you. Will you take home a mini-Mayhem, or handsome Hercules? This workshop is 2 hours in duration and is suitable for ages 12 and over.
Alpaca Fibre Pom Poms
Bag charms, keychains, bobbles for hats and scarves are all fashionable and fun accessories - even better when made by you with your choice of size, fibre and colour. You may have fallen for an alpaca from the Wolfridge herd and now you can make a pom pom to match them! Our Pom Poms have a luxurious look which is more fur-like than traditional pom poms made from knitting yarn as it is using the super soft fibre in its unspun form. Suitable for ages 5 and over (younger crafters will require some assistance).
Felt Ball Bracelet / Garland / Keychain
During this needle felt session you will see the super-speedy method of making small felted spheres using the fibre of your choice. Watch your felted spheres take and hold the shape as you stab to sculpt them! With a little practice, you may be able to form each ball in as little as 5 minutes, then string them to make a fun garland for your house, a fun keychain, or even a chunky-bead effect bracelet. We have a range of our own herd's natural fibre if you are looking a gorgeous tonal alpaca creation of your own to treasure. This workshop is one hour in duration and is suitable for ages 11 and over.
Wet Felted Soap
A wet felted soap is a fantastic way to use soap more economically and provide mild exfoliation! As you use it the fibre shrinks along with the soap, allowing you to use every last bit of the bar, leaving you with a felted, gently exfoliating ‘scrubbie’. In this session you will select your choice of fibre – and alpaca is a fantastic option. Suitable for beginners, including children (younger participants will need some assistance). Each bar will take up to 45 min to create, however the more energetic crafter can make one in around 20 minutes. This workshop will be up to one hour in duration and is suitable for ages 5 and over.
