Talk on the Art of Taxidermy

Event:

Natalie Delaney-John of Rest in Pieces is hosting a unique talk and demonstration on Tuesday 15th of March, 2016, allowing you to discover the art of taxidermy in a relaxed environment.

This engaging talk and demonstration regularly sells-out and allows you to get up close to an age-old practice that remains macabre to some, and yet strangely beautiful to others.

The talk and demonstration is not for the squeamish, but it will fascinate those with a healthy curiosity and an open mind. As part of the experience, Natalie will speak about the practice and history of taxidermy and perform a skinning demonstration.

If you are feeling inspired after the event, and want to try taxidermy yourself, you can purchase a one of a kind Revival Kit on the night.

Bookings are now open for the upcoming Talk on the Art of Taxidermy. Tickets are priced $50 per person and include:

  • 1 hour talk on the art of taxidermy

  • 30 minute skinning demo

  • 30 minutes of Q&A

  • Wine throughout the evening
