Grief and the Holidays: Creation of a Remembrance Ornament

Grief and the Holidays: Creation of a Remembrance Ornament


Teens ages 13 – 18 who have experienced the loss of a loved one or are anticipating a future loss due to chronic illness, dementia, etc. Best for teens who have experienced loss a minimum of 6 months prior to this event.


Join us for a 90 minute workshop and leave with a handmade remembrance ornament created to help process emotions and memories following the loss or anticipating the loss of a loved one. Sentier will provide all materials needed to create remembering ornaments.

During this workshop, participants will be guided to identify and label the different emotions they feel when they think about the person they have lost/will lose. Participants will be able to express these emotions through creation of a remembrance ornament. Participants will then be guided to recall favorite memories they have about the person they have lost/will lose and add these memories to their remembrance ornament.


Saturday, December 3rd from 9:30 – 11:00 am.

The winter holidays can be an especially difficult time for teens who have lost a loved one or are in the process of losing someone. It can be a tough time to acknowledge all feelings during a time when people expect others to feel deeply thankful or embrace holiday excitement. During the holiday season it’s even more important to have a safe space to continue to process emotions about our loss as well as a space to share and remember memories of our loved one(s).
