As part of workshop every attendee is given a personalised welcome pack. This usually includes a welcome letter with links to items covered, photo tutorials, babywearing safety information and local sling meets. Workshops currently cost £8 per person, although I will have to increase this shortly to cover rising costs. Sling hire is not included in cost but can be arranged on the day.
Workshops I have previously organised have covered:
- Newborn carrying
- Ring Slings
- Woven Wraps
- Stretchy wraps and beyond the basic PWCC
- Back carrying
Workshops however can be tailored to cover what you would like, so if you want something specific then just shout! My eldest has recently started school and my youngest is now in nursery 2 days a week. This is giving me more flexibility in when I can offer sessions for the library, consultations and workshops. I have also decided to stop attending the Newcastle sling meet as it was not financially worthwhile. This combination of circumstances mean I can now offer more workshops. I therefore intend to create "Workshop Wednesday's" on the first Wednesday of each month and one Thursday a month may also be provided. These will be for 2 hours* and have no more than 5 participants.
I am rather excited to be able to offer these. I hope you will be too. Usual library rules apply; so expect there to be sufficient tea and cake. Tickets for events will be able to be 'purchased' online.
*exception of October 1st which will be 90 minutes
