Dying to DIY DEATH

About this event

In this workshop we will be looking at family led funerals and home death care. We will look at the role of Doula at end of life and how families and communities can take a lead role in the care of their dying and dead in a home environment.

  • Doulas and Family-led Funerals
  • Death Care at Home
  • Home Funerals- A Photographic Journey
  • Q&A Session
