Woven Wrap Skills
Using a simple piece of cloth to carry your baby safely and comfortably is one of the oldest arts there is, and one passed from generation to generation in many cultures of the world. Come and learn the principles of woven wrapping, and how they apply to basic and advanced ways of working with the cloth. Learn the terms for the passes, work with long or short cloths, and find your way to a comfortable repertoire of carries that suit you. Carrier rental is available on the day or bring your own to work with. Suitable for babies and children of all carried ages.

SATURDAY 16th JANUARY 2016 1-3pm in Farsley, Leeds.

Maximum five families/Minimum three families. Spaces must be pe-booked.

Back To Basics

Carrying your baby on your back can be a major milestone when using slings and carriers, extending the life of your carriers and allowing you to be hands free and super mobile. But it is also one of the most asked about processes in the sling library, and one of the times parents need the most support with carrying. This workshop covers the basics of getting your baby onto your back safely, how to stand, bend and support your child, how to maintain your back carry comfortably, and take your baby down afterward. This workshop is aimed at parents of children 6 months plus using buckle carriers and mei tais NOT woven wraps. Please ensure that your child meets the manufacturer’s minimum age, weight and developmental guideline for the carrier you own. Carrier rental is available on the day if you need a more suitable option.

SATURDAY 16th JANUARY 2016 10am-12 noon in Farsley, Leeds.
SATURDAY 13th FEBRUARY 10-12am in Farsley, Leeds.
