Coffin Club!

What?: Kate and Kate’s Coffin Club is based on a model that has successfully run in New Zealand for a number of years. It is for elderly people, people who are terminally ill, or the people who care for those people, to come and, as a labour of love, personalise their coffin. You will have a coffin to decorate, materials to decorate with, and some artistic volunteers to help with the process and give inspirational ideas. There will also be a talk each week from industry professionals to help you plan your perfect send-off.
