Description

Rest in Pieces invites you to attend Australia's first skeletal articulation workshop.

Gerard Geer one of Australia's leading skeletal artists has joined the R.I.P team and will take you on a very special exploration into skeletal articulation. 

The 2 Day Workshop runs from 2.00pm - 8.00pm on Saturday 26th October & 10.00am - 7.00pm on 27th October. 

Throughout the 2 day workshop you will get hands on with the process of skinning and articulation, as well as attend an informative seminar on specimen cleaning and preservation. 

At the end of the 2 day workshop, you will walk away with an insight into this fascinating art and you will each have a gorgeous mounted mouse skeleton housed in a glass dome. 

Everything will be supplied over the 2 days including the mice, tools, glass dome, apron, lunch, snacks, and wine.

No previous taxidermy or skeletal articulation experience is necessary to attend this class.
