New Zealand Babywearing Week is about to start and we're very excited about it. We have a number of events planned and would love to see you at any or all of them.
Our first event is a free Babywearing Dance Class on Monday, October 10th, from 10:30am at the Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt.
In this 45min class you will learn the basics of Cha cha, how to Cha cha safely with your baby, a lovely choreography to dance with your baby at home and how to add in your partner to your Cha cha fun! All welcome, no previous experience or rhythmical talent required.
Check out the facebook event for more details.
Our second (and third) event will be a DIY stretchy wrap workshop.
This event will have two parts - the first is a fabric shopping trip to The Fabric Warehouse (126 Hutt Rd, next to Spotlight) at 10:30am on Tuesday, 11th October. The fabric Warehouse have offered us a very generous discount on fabric for the workshop. The discount is only available during this trip, so come along to take advantage. More details on the facebook event.
The second is an informal craft session at The Southern Cross, at 10:30am on Friday, 14th October. Bring your fabric and your creativity and we will be on hand to offer help in shaping and embellishing your wrap. Have a look at the facebook event for more details.
Come along to either or both events and make a wrap for yourself or share the wearing by making one for a new parent in your life. The only cost involved is for the fabric you purchase.
And to round off the week we have our main event: our annual Slingwalk through central Wellington. It should be a lot of fun and there are some great giveaways and amazing prizes to be won!
