Description

Rest in Pieces invites existing students from the 1-day Beginner Rat Taxidermy class or participants who have completed the DIY Revival Kit to join our 2-day Intermediate Rabbit Workshop.

Throughout the 2-day Workshop (9 - 7pm both Saturday and Sunday) we will lead you further down the taxidermy rabbit hole, building upon and refining your skills in skinning, fleshing, preserving, and mounting a complete specimen. You will also be guided through the traditional torso building technique of soft body wrapping and learn some of the basics of beetle feeding. 

At the end of the 2-day workshop, you will walk away with a gorgeous rabbit in your choice of one of three poses: standing, sitting or lying down. You will also have the option of purchasing a Take Home Kit to practice your newly acquired skills in your own time.

As usual, the RIP team will take care of everything for you. All necessary tools along with your specimen, apron, food, drinks, and even wine will be provided on the day.


Would you like to book a Take Home Kit?

Workshop + Kit contains the following:

- Frozen Rabbit

Nat and her team provide such an incredible experience like no other. I feel extremely lucky to have been able to do this course. Nat and her assistant Sofiya were very warm, welcoming and supportive throughout the experience. I could have easily lost myself for many more hours in her amazing workshop of oddities and creations (whilst sipping bubbles and eating THE MOST DELICIOUS food by her personal chef). I’m very happy with my little rabbit and recommended to anyone!!
