Information & Prices
The Carrying Works aims to help people discover the wonderful world of slings & support them with carrying from pregnancy to newborn, baby to toddler & beyond. We aim to make these services affordable & our drop-in sessions for hires or brief advice are free. However, there are costs involved with running the library such as insurance & training as well as the more obvious ones such as purchasing, maintaining & replacing slings.
Perhaps open group sessions aren’t really your thing & you’d like a session for just you & your friends? Perhaps you would like more in-depth advice than is available in a busy library session? Perhaps you’re unable to find a drop-in session at a time or location to suit you? Or maybe you would prefer to be in the comfort of your own home? A consultation or workshop could be just the session for you. Below are details of the services we currently offer in addition to our library drop-ins.
Electronic, printable gift vouchers can be purchased for a specific amount or for a workshop or consultation. Simply get in touch via the contact us page, email or Facebook Page for more information.
Full Consultation: Up to 2 hours
This session is a great option if you are looking for detailed, one-to-one help & support. Perhaps you would like a full introduction to slings or perhaps a more focused session on a particular carrier type & how to get the most from it. Maybe you’d like to learn a new skill such as back carrying with your woven wrap. Before the session we will discuss your needs & expectations for the session in order to tailor the session to suit.
£35 at TCW (Home visits are available by request & at an additional charge)
If you & a friend with the same needs would like to have a joint session, this is certainly possible. As with the standard full consultation, we will discuss your needs & expectations for the session beforehand in order to tailor the session to suit & to ensure you both leave having got the most from the session. To reflect the more complex nature of these sessions & the fact they often take a little longer, these sessions are priced slightly differently.
£20 per person at TCW (Home visits are available by request & at an additional charge)
Short Consultation: Up to 1 hour
This session is suited to those who are looking for support such as troubleshooting a carry with a woven wrap, learning a new carry or perhaps learning to back carry with your buckled carrier. As with the full consultation, we will discuss your needs & expectations for the session beforehand in order to tailor the session to suit.
£20 at TCW (Home visits are available by request & at an additional charge)
Recommend & Fit / Technique Check: Up to 30mins
Can’t make it to a library session? Would you prefer a quieter environment? Maybe you’d simply like a short 1-2-1 session to check your technique for some reassurance. Or maybe you’d just like to try out a carrier or two before deciding what to hire. This could be the session for you.
