I am very happy to invite you to my babywearing exhibition at The Portico Gallery in West Norwood. As well as my portraits of parents wearing their children there will be talks and events for the duration of the exhibition. All events are free and children of any age are very welcome.

Exhibition runs Saturday 12th October – Wednesday 16th October at The Portico Gallery, 23A Knights Hill, West Norwood, SE27 0HS.

Times and full details of events will be posted on Warm Glow Photo nearer the time.

Saturday 12th October

The exhibition will begin with cakes by Anne of Toast & Butter from 10am on Saturday 12th October.

Later that day Maria Yasnova from La Leche League South East London will offer breastfeeding information and support with an informal Q and A session, and Virginia Carrington will talk on “Good Enough Parenting”.

Sunday 13th October

Clare Caro (founder of Nature Play) will talk about infant brain development and how an understanding of this can help you support your baby’s learning and help them to thrive.

Then John Graves (psychologist, counsellor, life coach and my dad!) will talk on attachment parenting. This will be followed by an informal discussion and Q and A session with the two speakers.

Monday 14th October

The exhibition will be open in the morning but currently no talks are scheduled.

Tuesday 15th October

In the morning Emily Williamson from the South London Sling Library (a major supporter of this project) will be running a sling surgery to offer help and advice on getting the most out of your sling or carrier, plus bringing a small range of slings with her for you to try.

Wednesday 16th October

The exhibition will close on Wednesday morning with a tea and cake morning. Please bring some cake to share if you can.
