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 November 2019 • Rest in Pieces Taxidermy Workshop

The Rest in Pieces workshop was fantastic, Instruction was clear and concise, the space had a nice atmosphere, the food and drinks supplied were great, all the tools were in good condition and the instructor was terrific company. I was so looking forward to the workshop but i had no idea how much I was going to get out of it, it was just all round a really wonderful experience!

Well structured class fit for all levels of experience. Nat is a great trainer who teaches at a suitable and sensitive pace. She is happy to answers any questions and show in more detail any techniques participants struggled with. Delightful environment to learn in and would thoroughly recommend this for all levels of interest. Well worth the money! Plus would recommend the take home kit so the hobby can continue.

The workshop was interesting, educational and fun. The organisers catered for all levels of skill. I hadn’t had any experience of cutting animals (not even preparing meat!) before this session, but I was still able to complete the workshop without any issues. The specimens we worked on were ethically resourced, painlessly euthanised and treated with respect. I would recommend this workshop to anyone interested in natural history, anatomy and biology.
