Lothians Speak Their Name suicide memorial quilt making workshop 

12 March 2024

  • When: Sunday 24 March from 11.00 am til 1.00 pm and Thursday 18 April from 6.30 pm til 8.30 pm 
  • Location: The Melting Pot, Calton Road, Edinburgh EH8 8DL 

Each workshop is a chance for anyone bereaved by suicide to come along and create a square in memory of the person they lost. These are safe, welcoming spaces, where we hope people will feel able to talk about their loss while creating their squares: This will be especially important for anyone who hasn’t been able to talk about their loss before, maybe for social or cultural reasons. The squares will then be sewn into a memorial quilt, which will be toured around various public venues in Edinburgh and the Lothians, on display to the public. We hope this will raise awareness of issues around mental health and suicide, and to encourage people who see the quilt and may be struggling with their own mental health, to seek help and support.
