A day of taxidermy with Meesh Bryant - learn all the basic steps of taxidermy to create your own masterpiece.
If you’ve ever fancied enlivening your mantelpiece with dancing, singing, pipe-smoking or motorbike-riding mice, then this workshop is for you.
All it takes to learn to stuff your own animals is a little basic knowledge and a creative imagination. Meesh Bryant will take each student through the step-by-step process of mouse taxidermy: from ethically sourcing your rodents, to preservation, stuffing, and positioning. By the end, you’ll have a happy little mouse, a quirky talking point for your mantelpiece and a new experience to tell your friends about.
The class is intended for beginners, no former taxidermy experience is required.
The Idler Academy, West London. The nearest tube stations are Royal Oak or Westbourne Park, there is free parking on the streets surrounding the shop on Sundays.
Taxidermy workshops take place every 4-6 weeks. They last four hours and are typically on Sundays from 12 - 4pm. This will be confirmed at the time of booking.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
All mice are ethically sourced and were not killed specifically for this class. The mice used are feeder animals for snakes and lizards. Not only would the mice be discarded if they weren’t sold but the reptiles who eat them wouldn’t be able to survive if the feeder rodents weren’t commercially available. Unlike us omnivores the majority of reptilian species don’t have the option of being vegetarian.
No dangerous chemicals will be used and all animals are disease free. Please be advised that this class is not for the faint hearted. There will be minimal blood and gore, but taxidermy is not for everyone. Please do not bring any dead animals with you to the class.
There will be complimentary tea and coffee on arrival for all students, and a Hendrick's gin and tonic to quaff whilst admiring the finished pieces at the end of the day, soft drinks are also available.
Class size: each workshop will have a maximum of 15 people. Age range: this class is suitable for over 16s only.
