Sunday March 12th

10:30am-3:30pm Introduction to Tending the Body of a Loved One at Home after Death

For the few days between death and burial or cremation, people have the option to tend their deceased loved one’s body themselves in the privacy of home. This tender act, which requires no ‘specialist professional’ input, can aid in grieving, bring a sense of fulfillment, and help families, including children, to meet death as something normal and natural.

In this workshop you will learn the practicalities of tending a body at home after death.

Donations on the day to cover expenses appreciated. Suggested donation £20. Vegetarian Lunch available £7, which needs to be booked in advance.

(Note: Packed lunches are not accepted at the venue)

The Sunday workshop is subsidised through our grant funding, hence the different payment structure. We have a small amount of funding to assist with attendance and travel costs – please get in touch if this would help you attend.
