Rest in Pieces - Intermediate Baby Chick Class



Description

Rest in Pieces invites existing students from the 1-day beginner taxidermy class or participants who have completed the DIY Revival kit to join our baby Chick class. 

Throughout the half day workshop Nat will build upon and refine your skills in skinnning, fleshing, preserving, and mounting a complete specimen. You will also be guided through the traditional torso building technique of soft body wrapping and learn to preserve the feet with injections.

At the end of the half-day workshop you will walk away with a gorgeous Baby Chick and be given the option to purchase a wooden base or a wooden base and chick-sized dome to mount your specimen from the class on. 

And of course we have a take home kit available to purchase so you can 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, snacks, drinks, and wine will be provided on the day.

Would you like to book a take home kit?

Workshop + Kit contains the following:

- Frozen baby Chick

- Tools for skinning and mounting your specimen

- Products for cleaning, fleshing, and preservation

- Wooden base to mount specimen on (purchase an extra wooden base if you want one for your class specimen to sit on)

- List of instructions from the half day workshop

Please note: if you are flying in from interstate and want a take home kit, you will need to have checked in luggage as many of the sharp items will not be accepted in hand luggage.

Had a really great day learning to taxidermy a fluffy little chicken. Natalie made us all so welcome with her relaxed introduction & great sense of humour. Our instructor , Tull, was clear & precise in his explanation & very patient. Jason kept us well hydrated throughout. The procedure is not difficult as we just do one step at a time & at class end we all have an excellent specimen.This is a great craft to learn as there are more exciting classes coming up on doing all sorts of other specimens. Thanks again to the Rest in Pieces team
