Taxidermy - Taxis 'arrangement' + Derma 'skin'

Natalie Delaney-John has traveled far and wide to learn the art of taxidermy and has been mentored by some of the world's best and most awarded taxidermists. She is the proud founder of Rest in Pieces, which launched Australia's first taxidermy workshops, conducts talks and has just released the Revival Kit so that you can learn this beautiful art in the comfort of your own home.

In 2016 the R.I.P team expanded to bring you Skeletal Articulation and Intermediate Taxidermy classes. Next year is set to see the team expand even further with the addition of Death Moth Entomology classes, a Taxidermy Taster class and Advanced classes.

09 June 2019 • Rest in Pieces - Sheep Heart Corrosion Casting

What fabulous, weird and wonderful workshop!! I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days that we spent at Rest in Pieces in Melbourne. I found it pitched at the right level, catering for all backgrounds, whether scientific or not. Nat is a beautiful soul, outside and in and by the end of the 2 days i feel like I’ve known her forever. Gavin was great and very knowledgeable teacher. I met so many fascinating people and came away with a piece of art that i will cherish always. My 3 year old son wants to come with me next time!! Thanks again :)

I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop and can't stop telling people about how much I learnt and how much fun I had! Gavin led the group through the process of identifying basic structures of the heart, injecting the arteries, macerating the specimen, and cleaning it up for mounting with infectious enthusiasm, expertise, and a great deal of patience. Nat and her team also bring such fun and personality to the space - I instantly felt welcome and met a bunch of really interesting people too. The course is appropriately pitched for people with and without anatomical knowledge and I am so satisfied with the beautiful specimen I now have at home.

This corrosion casting workshop was amazing. A step by step detailed workshop that left me with the confidence and tools to do this technique on my own. Gavin is a great teacher and made everything very easy to understand. Definitely recommend this workshop to all!
