Giant blue morpho butterfly pinning & prosecco

February 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us inside the curious setting of Moth Studios for a special evening class learning the process of entomology whilst sipping on bubbly…

Sherene will teach you the basic techniques that entomologists practice when preserving these beautiful specimens. You will pin one Morpho butterfly each and then will be shown how to mount it into your own shadow box frame. There will be 2 glasses of fizz per student (18+)  and everything you create in the class, you will get to take home with you at the end of the evening! The blue morpho butterfly, scientific name Morpho didius is one of the most stunning butterfly on the planet. Its wing span reaches 6 inches! The brightly coloured butterfly is abundant in tropical environments in Central and South America. This truly is a special workshop!

All tools, specimens and frames will be provided by Moth Studios. (Tools are not to be taken home with you, they are the property of Moth Studios)

Tea, coffee & water refreshments will be complimentary.

Specimens are obtained from sustainable sources. Stock received is from responsible breeders from the Lepidopterist Breeders Association, and donations from natural deaths in the wild.
