Taxidermy classes at Moth Studios consist of a variation of animals that you can choose from for a workshop. We primarily teach beginners taxidermy classes, focusing on students who want to give taxidermy a try to see what its all about. We host rodent taxidermy, skinning classes, skull decorating, beginner and intermediate bird and mammal workshops, amongst many more. Please check out our class calendar, this is where you will find what workshops are happening when, pricing per class and booking. Customers can also request one-on-one sessions if they would prefer it to a group. Please contact Sherene directly for further queries or any other information you would like for those services.
All of Moth Studios’ specimens used in classes and in works are responsibly and legally obtained. All animals have been donated or found once they have has passed. The animals come from aviaries, sanctuaries, road kill, pet stores, pest control, natural deaths in the wild and sometimes pets. We do not violate any legal laws nor do we support anyone who practices this. Moth has the upmost respect for animals in life and after death. This is priority and poignant in our constitution. We don’t like to use the word “ethical” as it many different meanings to different people, we can however provide further information on each specimen if you would like to find out more.View Classes
One of our most popular classes at Moth Studios! These classes allow you to explore the fascinating and beautiful anatomy of insects. Our entomology classes are approximately 2 hours long and usually held as an evening class. It’s a more relaxed and a less intense introduction into the world of Moth Studios and exploring avenues of taxidermy.
“Entomology” (The art of insect pinning). Students will learn how to rehydrate, relax and pin their specimens. We primarily host butterfly pinning classes but occasionally dabble with bugs, beetles, moths and other insects. Please see our class calendar or get in touch if you have any further queries. We also offer one to one’s, occasion and tailor-made classes. A few of our most popular ones have been birthdays, hen doo’s, family outings, surprise parties and corporate team building days.
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. Sherene has been trained in London and locally as a side project to her taxidermy training, fell in love with it and got fully involved in all things Entomology since!View Classes
