Granny Squares – An old favourite, small squares than can be sewn together to create stunning larger projects such as blankets and scarfs.
Lace Work – From simple combinations of basic stitches and chains to intricate Bruge lace patterns lace work can be as simple or as complicated as you like. It is a wonderful way to either expand on your basic skills or really challenge yourself.
Complicated Stitches – Once you have got to grips with the basic crochet stitches then it could be time to expand your skills into the enormous variety of fancy stitches there are out there to give your work infinite variety.
Tunisian Crochet – This is a wonderful form of crochet worked on an extra-long hook.

This technique produces a wonderful dense fabric and is a fantastic way for more experienced crocheters to try something new in the world of crochet.

Primrose Alpacas and Craft School is a small family run business set in a tranquil farm setting located just outside Downham Market near the Norfolk/Cambridgeshire border. Classes are run in our comfortable, purpose built craft cabin and we have a large car park for you.
We have a small herd of alpacas and llamas onsite who are an absolute delight to be around. These wonderful creatures are friendly and inquisitive and love saying hello to new people. Alpacas are bred for their beautiful quality fibre which is extremely soft and light whilst still being strong and durable. Come and feel the difference between some raw alpaca and sheep fibre you will be amazed at just how soft our gorgeous alpaca fibre is. Many of our Fibre Craft classes use the fibre from our herd amongst other mediums so you may be able to meet the animal who has grown the item you have just made! During your visit you are welcome to meet our lovely herd of alpacas and llamas and we can tell you all about these wonderful fibre producing animals
