What you will do
First, Susanne Duijvestein will introduce you to the tradition of the burial shroud, including its meaning and practicalities in Dutch culture. Then you will start to create your own shroud from a natural fabric and treat it with organic materials. The idea is that you make a start with your shroud, and bring it back home to continue working on it.
As an independent funeral director with a love of nature and a keen eye for aesthetics and ethics, Susanne is making a difference in the funeral world. Her mission is to talk more with each other about death, and our own nature. She reflects on how we relate to impermanence and advocates for a more sustainable and personal farewell. Susanne is also curator of the Nature Morte program at Mediamatic.
