£25 per person, advance registration required!  Buy online or stop in the shop to purchase your space.

Spend a few hours with us, have a couple of drinks (included with your ticket purchase!) snack, if you aren't squeamish! and observe the basic practice of small mammal taxidermy. Licensed taxidermist, Heather will demonstrate the steps needed to stuff a mouse in the style of Walter Potter, Victorian King of Anthropomorphic taxidermy. She will explain the processes, tools and materials used throughout as well as discuss the history of anthropomorphic and modern trends including rogue and ethical taxidermy. Questions and photos are welcome throughout, no video without advance arrangement please.  No one is required to touch or participate beyond viewing.  This is a lot of fun and Heather will  not be drinking since she will wield a scalpel.  A great event to attend if you aren't sure if you can handle one of the Introductory workshops we offer!
