Weaving a willow coffin
Terrace Gallery, mac Birmingham
10.30am – 3pm
Sarah and Mel from Lily Willow Coffins will be demonstrating weaving a willow coffin and you’re welcome to join in. They specialise in weaving coffins with family members and find the therapeutic value of weaving makes this a uniquely valuable and tender part of saying goodbye.
Bring along any materials that are suitable for weaving and you can add them to the coffin.
Melanie Bastier and Sarah Hatton own Lily Willow Coffins in partnership. Between them, Mel and Sarah have 20 years of willow weaving experience. The coffins they produce have countless hours of tried and tested willow weaving experience behind them. They are dedicated and passionate about the heritage craft of willow weaving and provide high quality, environmentally friendly sustainable willow coffins.
