WOODLANDERS EP6: WILLOW COFFINS

Jake Whitcroft is the founder of Sussex Willow Coffins. He weaves willow coffins made from materials he grows and manages around the West Sussex region of England. Jake’s is working to create more biodiversity and habitat in the woodlands he works in and in doing so gets to harvest the different pieces of wood he needs to build his woven coffins. By weaving together the materials from the woodland landscape this type of work offers a full circle of ceremony for celebrating the life of the person and the place.
