A Unique Course with Angie McLachlan (2 days)

For just 8 students, this practical hands-on course by the award winning Angie McLachlan and Green Fuse has to be the nearest to working with a body you can get, without an actual body. 

Angie built Ichabod, fully articulated to give you a real experience of body care! With our focus on how to look after the dead with care and attention, respect and ritual, you accompany Ichabod on his journey from the point of death to his final resting place.

Good practice in caring for the body will help you prepare the body in the most comfortable and natural way for visiting and vigil by the families, giving them an experience of comfort, calm and peace and minimising any fears.

Confidence inspiring

This is a special course where Angie teaches the main tasks you will need to practice when caring for the dead
It is a course designed to help you gain confidence and practical skills in managing and repairing damaged tissue, cosmetic work, preparing the body for viewing and working safely in the mortuary environment.
