    Got A Question?

    Please read through our FAQs thoroughly.

    If you can’t find the answer you seek, feel free to contact us
    and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    The RIP team is keen and ready to answer your questions. Before contacting us though, we ask that you first read the class description thoroughly. We take a lot of care making sure the course description contains everything you need to know to help you choose the right workshop and we find that most of the answers you seek are already there waiting for you. 

    We no longer offer interstate classes

    We offer instalment billing on classes but not on Memoriam work or on the online shop

    Great question! At RIP we believe it is important to be mindful of where animals come from. Our students understand that preservation is an art form that breathes
    new life into a deceased animal.

    For our current suite of classes we either use animals that have been bred for the
    purpose of python feeding, game that is sourced for food or pest species that have
    been culled in government programs aimed to protect our native wildlife.

    Our butterflies are sourced from butterfly farms in South America, Central Africa and Southeast Asia. They are allowed to pass away naturally before they are collected.
    Some are even released into the wild to maintain populations in areas where they
    are endemic.

    Yes we do! Rest in Pieces offers a range of preservation options as unique as your bond with your pet.

    Visit The Memoriam page to view our services and get in touch to memorialise your pet.

    Unfortunately we are not able to offer work experience or internships

    Taxidermy has not been formally taught in Australia since the 1970’s. Most taxidermists in Australia are self-taught or have travelled to the USA or UK to learn their craft.

    We have taught many intrigued minds from 14 years and upwards. If you are under
    18 we do like to have a chat to a guardian about the workshop prior to the booking
    being made, so give us a call.

    Are you kidding? There is no such thing.
