Memento Mori: Weaving a Shroud with Anne Fernweh

Memento Mori: Weaving a Shroud with Anne Fernweh

Join Anne Fernweh and the growing death-positive and green burial movements by weaving your own burial shroud, a piece meant to accompany you in life as well as in death. Weaving your own shroud offers a countercultural opportunity to explore and reconnect with grief, mortality, and your innate wisdom therein. Not only for those nearing death, a handwoven shroud is designed to travel with you through life. It is meant to be filled with memories, stories and your unique vitality, all of which it then carries with you in death. 
 This two-week class begins with an introduction to burial shroud traditions from around the world and their reemerging relevance today. Students then workshop the design of their shroud, with guidance provided on the corresponding symbolism of colors, fibers, and structures. Students are encouraged to consider how these elements intersect with their interests, values, aesthetic and/or heritage, and are free to incorporate personalized design elements and/or ephemera to create a deeply personal piece. Individualized guidance and consultation are provided throughout the design, creation, and finishing processes.
