Community Coffin Club
Open every Thursday from 10am onwards, individuals and or family and friends, are assisted to make a coffin or casket for themselves or a loved one. You will need to provide your design materials and pay $5.00 each time upon entry. This goes to the Central Coast Council. If you prefer, you can choose to pay a $30.00 annual fee with nothing more to pay instead. This would cover you for each time we are open throughout the year. Our social space is where people can call in for a cuppa and chat about anything, gather a range of Death Literacy information or simply bring your knitting and join us. Throughout the year we also run a variety of Art programs.
There is no charge for people who are not regular attendees. You can find us on Facebook.
