Alpaca Workshops

FUN, FRIENDLY, HANDS-ON

Our workshops are practical, friendly, structured and fun. We work with small groups to give everyone plenty of learning time, so you can ask as many questions as you like. At the start of the training session you receive a comprehensive pack of training materials to refer to during the workshop and as helpful reminder when you get home.
