  • Tailor Made Taxidermy - Baby Chick Tutoring

    or make 4 interest-free payments of $150.00 AUD fortnightly with More info

    Rest in Pieces invites you to attend a one on one taxidermy workshop. 

    Throughout the day we will share our knowledge of the dying arts so you can begin your journey into the art of taxidermy: taxis, meaning ‘arrangement’ and derma, meaning ‘skin’

    You don’t need to have any previous taxidermy experience to take part in this workshop. We will teach you basic chick anatomy while guiding you through the correct process of skinning, preserving and mounting your specimen.

    There are different techniques used for mounting mammals and birds in taxidermy. In this workshop, you will learn the traditional torso building technique of soft body wrapping to mount (recreate) the body of your baby chick. You will also learn how to preserve the chick’s feet with injections.

    At the end of the workshop you will have created your own beautiful baby chick taxidermy from start to finish. To end the day, we will help you mount your baby chick in a glass dome, so you can display your gorgeous work with confidence.

    Everything will be supplied on the day including your baby chick, tools, glass dome and base, an apron, lunch and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the day. (Note, alcoholic beverages are only available for students 18+)

    What if you are feeling inspired and want to continue working on your new taxidermy skills once you get home? When you register for the workshop you can book a ticket with a take home kit.


    Ticket + Kit contains:

    • A frozen baby chick to work on at home
    • A complete set of the same tools and materials used in the workshop (excluding a glass dome and base)
    • A set of instructions so you can follow the same process used in the workshop 

     

    This unique opportunity is available between Monday - Thursdays 9am - 5pm.

     To book, simply choose the workshop or workshop + kit then email us and tell us your preferred class date.

    We will try to accomodate this and if for any reason we are unable to, we will work out a class schedule for you on a date that works.
