A showcase of the properties of Alpaca and Creativity

Entries are invited for the Creative Alpaca 2018 Display as part of the National Alpaca Expo 2018 to be held in Christchurch 5-7 October 2018.

We are looking for creations that show us the versatility, the warmth, the colour, the softness, the strength of alpaca. The silkiness, the drape, the wow factor. Traditional or new concepts we want to see them all.

We are also looking for high standard of craftsmanship and quality of process.

Open entry criteria, anyone may enter. There is no process limit and no size limit. No judging, just a selection process in the interest of a fabulous display.

Use at least 70% of Alpaca fibre, bone, skin, yarn or a mixture, and create something wondrous for us to showcase at the National Alpaca Expo.

Attire(adult, child, baby), rugs, wall hangings, toys, sculptures, home wares, or anything else!

Surprise us and have some fun!!
