Join us inside the curious setting of Moth Studios for a special evening class learning the process of entomology.
Sherene will teach you the basic techniques that entomologists practice when preserving these beautiful specimens. You will pin one Luna moth each and then will be shown how to mount it into your own shadow box frame. Everything you create in the class, you will get to take home with you at the end of the evening! The Luna moth or sometimes called the moon moth (Actias luna) is pale green in colour, almost a minty green shade. They are native to North America and have a wingspan of up to 7 inches! They host a peculiar eye spot on their markings and are particularly beautiful during flight because of their fluttering tails. 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)
Unfortunately we cannot offer you a our usual teas and coffees due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
There will be box frames for £12 available in the studio if you would like to protect the rest of the ‘practice’ butterflies that you pinned in the class at home.
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.
Gift vouchers are available for this class.
