Memento Mori – the first Death Café at St Fagans
November 3 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is an informal get together and an opportunity to talk about themes that are not often discussed, rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Hosted by Louvain Rees and Abike Ogunlokun, the first St Fagans Death Café will take a look at how we think about death in Wales and other cultures, in the past and present.
Join us to discover the morbid side of St Fagans as you take part in a ‘death on site’ tour, view and handle objects from our collections, enjoy cake, have a chat about the end of life and make your own memorial jewellery!
Bring old photographs, clothes, hair or similar reminders of your loved ones (they don’t have to be dead) for our memorial jewellery workshop and create some jewellery to remember!
