The Rest in Pieces Team is coming back to Sydney and we are inviting existing students from the 1-day beginner taxidermy class or people who have completed the DIY Revival kit to join us for our Baby Chick Taxidermy Workshop!

Throughout the workshop Nat will build upon and refine your skills in skinning, fleshing, preserving, and mounting a complete specimen. You will also be guided through the traditional torso building technique of soft body wrapping and learn to preserve the feet with injections.

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with a gorgeous Baby Chick and be given the option to purchase a wooden base or a wooden base and chick-sized dome to mount your specimen from the class on.

And of course we have a take home kit available to purchase so you can practice your newly acquired skills in your own time.

As usual, the RIP team will take care of everything for you. All necessary tools along with your specimen, apron, snacks, drinks, and wine will be provided on the day.

Tickets available here
