Introduction to Woven Wraps

About / description

Woven wraps are beautiful and many people wish they could learn how to use them... and we will show you how easy it can be!
 

Long woven wraps are among the most versatile options for carrying children of all ages, from birth to preschool age and beyond. They can be used on the front, back and hip, in single layers or several. We will look at how woven wraps are made, look at some different blends and lengths. We will teach you how to use a long woven wrap in a simple front carry; and how to tighten the wrap effectively for security and comfort.

Objectives

In this session we will start with the basic "FWCC - front wrap cross carry", learning how to make it very comfortable, before moving onto either the Front Cross Carry or the Robin's Hip Carry.
