Reusable Pad Making Workshop (PayWhatYouCanAfford)

Sonia from Kaiapoi

Pay-what-you-can-afford Reusable Cloth Pad Making Workshop

Come along to find out how, and to make your own cloth pads.
We will cover all styles from liner to full maternity post-birth style. So you can make whatever is of best use to you. Plus, we will cover and make re-usable breast pads also if there is interest.
We will also look a period undies, however a higher skill level is required for making these.

Each year, women spend hundreds of dollars on sanitary products, with these all ending up in landfill. No to mention the toxins contained within! Conventional pads and tampons often contain BPA, Phthalates, artificial fragrances, as well as other synthetic chemicals linked to hormonal and reproductive harm.

I personally began using re-usable products after a very scary allergic reaction to tampons nearly a decade ago, despite having used them without issues for years and years before.

All materials, machine etc supplied without charge. There will be a box at the door for anonymous payment if you can.

As an idea for payment (if you can afford)
Materials for one pad are about $2-5 depending on specs, materials for one basic pair of period undies are about $5, and the full amount it costs to run these classes including materials is about $30 per person.

Registration helps me plan how much materials to bring. Please only register if you are aiming to come. (email us if your circumstances change and you can no longer attend after registering. )

You can still attend if you haven't pre-registered, however spaces will only be given to those who have registered if the class is full.

If you wish you can also supply some of your own materials.
You'll end up making about 2 pads, and time dependent can also do breast pads or period undies.
Babies are welcome to attend with you.

Held at Kaiapoi Baptist Church, Thursday 19th March from 7pm.
