Learn all about the ancient craft of taxidermy from Rest In Pieces, in this hands-on taxidermy workshop for beginners in Sydney. Not only will you get the chance to learn from a professional, but you'll even get to take home your own taxidermy chick, too!

In this introductory workshop, Rest In Pieces taxidermist Roshana Vander Wall will guide you step by step through every process. You will get to learn the basic anatomy of a baby chick, as well as the correct techniques to skinning, preserving, mounting and much more.

With Roshana's guidance, you'll get the chance to try out traditional torso building and soft body wrapping to create your finished piece and at the end of the day, mount it in a glass dome.

This workshop will leave you feeling confident in your skills and knowledge of taxidermy and with a fantastic specimen to add to your shelves at home! Learn some new skills in a safe and fun environment and meet a community of like-minded artists and scientists.
