Join Alfie the Alpaca for fun learning adventures on the Alpaca Bus. Alfie and his friends (Ette, she’s from Paris, France and Cousin: Laurence the Lama and Becky the human who helps Alfie with his projects) will introduce young makers to a wide variety of textile-related art projects that are simple, fun and also sneak in STEAM based learning. In addition, Alfie will aid you in learning the Elements and Principles of Art so your art projects with be well designed.
Alfie's videos are on our YouTube channel---he even has his own playlist so you can find them all easily. Start with the videos to meet Alfie, learn about the color wheel and how to choose fabrics.
Check out our patterns (including seasonal ideas) and decide which projects might tickle your artistic fancy.
