Rest in Pieces is joining forces with work-shop and coming to Sydney for a very special event.
Let Rest in Pieces take you on a journey of discovery in a one-day introduction to the art of taxidermy.
The class offers a unique opportunity to get up close and hands on with this age-old practice that remains macabre to some, and yet strangely beautiful to others.
On the day, everyone will be given their own mouse to work on as they are guided step-by-step through the correct technique and process to skin, preserve and mount a standing specimen.
And when the class is over, everyone gets their own standing mouse (a very greedy cheese fiend) to take home, and an amazing experience to remember
Natalie Delaney-John started her taxidermy journey after she convinced one of Australia’s leading taxidermists to take her in as an apprentice. On the first day of Natalie’s mentorship he looked her up and down and declared: “You won’t last a second.”
Three years later she is out on her own and the proud founder of Rest in Pieces, which conducts introductory taxidermy courses in Melbourne. The classes have been sold out every month and have been featured in The Age, RRR, the ABC and SBS.
2016 will see the launch of the R.I.P Revival kits, a mentorship in Canada with the world’s leading taxidermist and the launch of her first major exhibition.
