Saturday, April 10 from 10am to 4pm, Church Gallery, Margaret River Community Centre
The Live-Die-Well Collaborative – Helen Seiver, Julieanne Hilbers and Christopher Young – are holding a ‘Remembrance’ workshop.
Material fees have been waived.
We will be doing weaving (involving a few techniques including braiding, knots, string making etc.) and adding of stories to the roving coffin first thing (10-1pm) and eco dyeing with shroud materials later in the day after lunch. The ‘coffin’ is a stick framework we made back in February that will travel through Margaret River, Balingup and Bunbury before settling at a remembrance ceremony on May 21.
Below you will find the flyer for what will be the first of three workshops in Margaret River, Balingup and Bunbury.
We are holding an Advance Care Planning workshop on Wednesday, 7 April from 3.00pm to 5.30pm at the Duggan Pavilion, Cowaramup.
This free workshop is presented by Palliative Care WA, sponsored by DDM AMR, and funded via a grant from Transition Margaret River.
Advance care planning is the process of discussing and documenting your future health care wishes, values and priorities. It enables your family, friends, carers and health professionals to understand what you want, should you become so unwell that you are unable to speak for yourself.

took on the responsibility of caring for both of her parents as they approached the end of their lives over a six year period of time. Both her parents died in their own time, at home surrounded by loving family and friends.
After this, many people sought Claire’s help to replicate that experience for themselves or family members.
The presentation is free of charge thanks to a grant from Transition Margaret River
After the presentation there will be tea and cake.
