Granny Lives in a Fluffy Cloud & Other Fairy Tales by The Grief Geek
Sat 22 October 2016, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
'Grandad's gone to live with the angels now.'
Children have very specific needs when faced with talking about death. They need to hear honest answers to their questions, suitable for their developmental stage.
Through storytelling and a guided hands on activity, Caroline Lloyd aka The Grief Geek will guide children through the bonds that form attachment and loss in a fun and interactive workshop.
This is a drop in workshop for children and will take place in the Wenlock Barn at The National Trust's Sutton House. Free tickets can be booked in advance, or you can drop in on the day between 12 and 2pm.
Suitable for children of all ages.
