Joan Pillsbury has invited carpenter Chuck Lakin of Maine to bring his Coffin Building Workshop to western Massachusetts. He agreed to do so if we have eight (8) interested participants, each paying $200 for the materials and instruction. YOU would then have your own “plain pine box” for future use. Note: plan to bring a roof rack or truck to transport your coffin home. For photos and more information about Chuck Lakin, see his website: lastthings.net .

Interested?   Email us at fcawmass@gmail.com or leave a message for Joan on our FCAWM voicemail: 413-376-4747. This workshop is sponsored jointly by Green Burial Massachusetts and the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Western Massachusetts.
