A two-hour workshop designed to provide a safe, creative space in which participants are free to express their stories of death and dying in their own way.

Taking part in a creative workshop

our workshops are

  • approximately two hours long – but can be longer or shorter

  • for up to 15 adults

  • created to encourage creative responses to death and dying using art, music, poetry and scripture

  • designed as stand-alone events

  • easier to facilitate in terms of time commitment than a death preparation course
