After you have crafted Wind Catcher, you will have to find it in your inventory and equip it. After that start, you will have to get it charged by collecting Aneograna that will be stored in it. 

After you have charged it, you will have to go to the desired place where you want a wind current and then press the allotted key to activate it. 

An upward wind current will be created, and you can start gliding but don't wait for it since the current will disappear after a few seconds.
