Giant Blue Morpho preservation workshop

In this workshop you will discover the basics of preparing, setting & preserving a series of amazing specimens. You will learn the techniques of pinning butterflies before moving onto your beautiful Blue Morpho whilst sipping on a glass of fizz! This is truly the perfect workshop to start 2022, just in time for valentines/galentines day!

The Blue Morpho Butterfly (Morpho didius) is one of the most stunning butterfly on the planet. It’s wingspan reaching over 6 inches…

ALL curious creations you preserve get to come home with you – and last forever.

 

Each ticket includes:

  • 3 hour workshop with taxidermist Sherene Scott
  • Your very own preserved Blue Morpho butterfly to proudly display at home
  • Your own preserved set of enchanting butterflies to take home
  • Prosecco will be served during the session (Tea, coffee & water also available)
  • Complementary vegan cupcakes
  • A fun, encouraging, social safe space to meet like-minded souls!

 

FYI: Super limited to eight spaces – so book early to avoid disappointment!

 

Where to find us:

You’re gonna love this… we’re teaming up with the badass ladies at Skullen Collective Ltd for this extra-special event! It’s a gloriously quirky venue under the Tyne Bridge at Newcastle’s Quayside, so dead easy to reach from the city centre! More details on how to find us here.

No creatures are killed for this art!

Moth Studios places utmost importance in ensuring all specimens are responsibly & legally sourced, logged, stored and mounted. We love animals and treat them with the respect they deserve in both life and afterlife.

Going forward, Moth Studios will be hosting smaller alternative experiences every other month. This is a truly exclusive opportunity to learn a new unusual skill, have fun, get into the festive spirit, and preserve your own part of natural history forever!
