Death Cafe Wanaka is group that embraces and honours the intricacies, ambiguities and mysteries surrounding how one may seek meaning within the context of death and dying.
This week the MenShed team have been working with members of the Death Cafe to finalise how they can access the Wanaka Community Workshop and construct coffins for themselves or their loved ones.
Over recent weeks the team at the MenShed have built a couple of prototypes.
Both prototypes have been built of recycled materials but each to a different design. One was displayed at the presentation by the Death Cafe at this weeks Matariki 2023 held on the shores of Lake Wanaka.
We are working toward hosting night school classes in September which will be led by members of the MenShed team where members of the Death Cafe can construct their coffins.
