Rest in Pieces presents the Art of Taxidermy, a talk and skinning demonstration with founder Natalie Delaney-John. The evening offers an opportunity to gain unique insights into this age-old practice that remains macabre to some, yet strangely beautiful to others.

Natalie will speak about the practice and history of taxidermy in an illustrated talk followed by a skinning demonstration. This workshop is not for the squeamish, but will fascinate those with a healthy curiosity and an open mind.

Revival Kits are $200 and will be available for purchase on the evening so that you can create your very own taxidermy mouse at home.
