Valentine’s taxidermy mouse 18+

February 8, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm


Join us for a special Valentine’s themed workshop at Moth Studios. Where students will learn the amazing process of taxidermy, whilst sipping on a glass of wine and eating Valentine’s chocolates. This is a beginners class, 18+ only… Sherene will teach you the process of skinning, cleaning and manikin making before putting your mouse back together and indulging on alcohol and chocolate towards the end of the session! There will be a selection of tiny themed lovers props to add to your final piece, such as roses, hearts, clothing, even some more humorous 18+ props. (Disclaimer* This is a silly themed class, so the more ridiculous and creative the better. Lets not take ourselves too seriously eh?…)

We will supply all specimens, tools, props & bases but please do bring along your own props if you would like to! Glass bell jars will be available inside the studio for £20 each, if you would like to keep your mouse protected when its at home .

A special, unusual and challenging workshop right in the city centre. Something different to do with your weekend that’s for sure! We provide tea & coffee refreshments for the day, but please feel free to bring your own lunches if you would prefer and if it is winter months, remember to wrap up warm, the studio gets cold in winter months.

Moth Studios mouse workshops are a bi-product of the food chain and the body/remains are given back as feed (We only use the skins!)
