Reusable Nappy Workshop

Morelanders, come and learn everything you need to know to get started with reusable nappies!

About this event:

Have you thought about making the switch to cloth nappies but are unsure about where to start? Elana from Cloth Nappy Workshops, Melbourne will take you through the benefits of cloth nappies and dispel any myths. In this 1.5 hour online workshop, you will discover the world of modern cloth nappies.

Elana will take you through how to wash them, where to buy them and what to look for. She will cover washing tips, dispel all those myths, show the different styles of modern cloth and most importantly an opportunity to ask questions to get you confident with cloth.

This is a comprehensive introduction to cloth nappies, and suits both expectant parents, and those who already have children in nappies. The presentation covers the benefits of cloth nappies (environmental, economical, etc.), the different styles (fitteds, pockets, AI2s, prefolds etc), how to wash them, and hacks to make cloth super easy. You’ll be able to ask Elana questions and be shown a wide variety of cloth nappies, but also other reusables such as ‘pull ups’, swim nappies and cloth wipes.


Due to limited spaces, this event is only open to residents in the Merri-bek municipality. The cost of attending a workshop is AU $20.00 per person for General Admission or $13.00 for Concession Card holders.

Each attendee will also receive a Zero Waste gift to help you on your cloth nappy journey. But be quick because workshops are limited to 20 people!
