Join us at the new venue - Mashuko Creative Hub, 70 Ghuznee Street, Wellington!
In this class, we will discuss the ethics involved in taxidermy, the health and safety aspects, and I will show you how to make your own piece. This class will be small to medium-sized birds which are great for beginners as you'll be able to see the difference in anatomy.
Preferably you'll source your own specimen, but if you do get caught short hopefully I can supply some too depending on what I've been able to collect (just let me know in advance).
Once you have enrolled (details in 'how to book'), I'll email you regarding how to store your specimen, as well as some considerations you may want to think about before you attend in regards to the finishing of the piece (mounting etc).
One week prior to the class, I will email enrolled students detailing further information about class preparation, and what to expect on the day.
Please also note that no native species will be accepted unless accompanied by a DOC permit. If you are unsure if your specimen is native, please check http://nzbirdsonline.org.nz/
