2. Modern Cloth Nappy Workshop

 Friday, 21 February 2020 

10:30am to 11.30am

Cambridge Library

Attend our free, relaxed, family-friendly workshop and learn about modern cloth nappies from birth to toilet training. Kam Andrews, engineer, scientist and now

“The Nappy Guru”, will present her extensive research and practical experience with cloth nappies. Modern cloth nappies are shaped, fitted, washable, reusable nappies. Typically made from fabrics such as cotton, microfibre, hemp or bamboo they are the same shape as a disposable nappy and most fasten using press studs or Velcro. They are easy to put on and don’t require pins, soaking or bleaching.

There will be an opportunity to see the various types of nappies available and try them out on demonstration dolls. This waste minimisation event is open for registrations now– held at Cambridge Library Friday 21 February at 10:30am

Registrations are limited – book now!
