The idea for the workshop comes from a growing trend of people preparing for their own deaths and personalising the funerals of loved-ones to make them more relevant for both the bereaved and the deceased. Inspired by the New Zealand "Coffin Clubs" as well as the writing of artists John Fox and Sue Gill, Rowan painted a coffin for her mother as part of preparing for her funeral.


Rowan will be sharing her experiences as well as helping you to create something unique and meaningful.


All paints used will be natural clay-based paints but please wear old clothing that you don't mind getting messy.


This event is part of Pushing Up The Daisies; Pembrokeshire's festival of living & dying 8-14 May
