Only with love: gentle care in death (workshop Sun 29 Apr)

Claire Turnham, founder of OWL (“Only with love”) Family-Led  Home Funerals, is offering a one-day workshop at Kelston Old Barn for individuals, health professionals and community groups who wish to offer support to families around the time of death. Claire will:

  • share her personal & professional experiences as a death carer & educator, home funeral guide and independent funeral celebrant;
  • discuss the possibilities that are available to families who wish to  care for their loved ones either in hospices or at home;
  • demonstrate how to prepare the body of a loved one naturally for burial and cremation and how to dress the body in a shroud;
  • facilitate an open forum on the ways in which we can change death care, both individually and as communities, to better honour the person who has died and their surviving loved ones.
