Rest in Pieces presents the Art of Taxidermy, a talk and skinning demonstration with founder Natalie Delaney-John. The evening offers an opportunity to gain unique insights into this age-old practice that remains macabre to some, yet strangely beautiful to others.

Natalie will speak about the practice and history of taxidermy in an illustrated talk followed by a skinning demonstration. This workshop is not for the squeamish, but will fascinate those with a healthy curiosity and an open mind.

You can also pre-order a DIY Revival Kit so that you can begin your RIP taxidermy journey in the comfort of your own home.

We loved this night so much! Natalie is knowledgable and informative, intelligent, funny, quick witted and talented. She had us all in the palm of her hand while she was skinning her mouse! We learnt a lot, laughed a lot and genuinely found a new respect for the art and craft of taxidermy ...... and it is pure art. What a pleasure and a delight, thank you RIP's.

The skinning was amazing! One of the best environments for fellow weirdos I've been too, great place to meet people. I left early but if I ever get the opportunity again look forward to seeing me make the most of it :) Very informative and hilarious, beautiful setting. Thankyou for a good night!

I absolutely loved this! I learnt so much about the history of taxidermy, Natalie was an incredible speaker, and it inspired me to want to learn a lot more about it! I will definitely be back for some of the classes!
