An afternoon of butterflies, scones & bubbles

Rest in Pieces is spreading its wings this spring and invites you to attend the all-new 'Butterflies & Bubbles' experience.

On Saturday 23rd September 2017, Rest in Pieces is presenting a fascinating full-day butterfly and moth pinning workshop.

How to pin specimens in 3 different styles

How to unpin and present their feature specimen in a shadow box

As part of the experience, all necessary tools, along with specimens and an apron will be provided.

Participants will also enjoy afternoon tea and bubbles during the day.

The interactive workshop is facilitated by the dedicated and friendly Rest in Pieces team, so all you have to do is sit back and get creative!
