Coffin Clubs

via Rags of Light:

This little article describes the rise of Coffin Clubs in New Zealand: a mix of woodworking class, therapy group and social club. Very wholesome. The trend has spread to other countries including the US.

It reminded me of a movement toward traditional, do-it-yourself burialand simple, hand-crafted coffins among Orthodox Christians.

The de-industrialization of death can only be a good thing.
