We welcome all commissions for coffins, urns and shrouds

You might have a particular design in mind for the item you’re after, or like the look of one of our coffins, urns or shrouds but would like it with a particular pattern, a specific colour or in a different shape.

For a coffin or urn, we can integrate into the weave particular treasures that you might want to be included; shells, driftwood and seaweed from a favorite beach, cuttings from a particular garden or hedgerow or woodland, material from an item of clothing, even the garden rake! For a felted shroud, we can stitch, needle felt or applique anything that holds significance into the piece. You’re very welcome to arrange a visit to the Pole Barn to see some of the pieces we have in stock to get more of an idea of what you’d like.

Whatever you have in mind, do get in touch and we can talk through what you’re after.

We also run 4 day courses in coffin making, come and make your own or for a loved one, the whole family can get involved with the making of your casket too.
