A St Albans-based bereavement charity is hosting a talk from a woman who used art to help her get over the death of her daughter.
Catherina Petit-van Hoey, a textile and mixed media artist from Hemel Hempstead, lost her 22-year-old daughter to sepsis six years ago.
Since then, she has used art and creativity to help her through the grieving process.
She said: “Art and all forms of creative work can play an important role as a healing therapy.”
The talk, called The Art of Grieving: A Mother’s Story is being held on Wednesday, June 18 between 7.30pm and 9pm at The Albany Centre on Victoria Street in St Albans.
