Event Details

Anthropomorphic Mouse Taxidermy (Morning Session)

Fri 18th April, 2014

10am-2pm

The term taxidermy comes from the Latin meaning ‘moving skin.' In this four hour workshop, students will learn how to skin and stuff a mouse, wire up limbs and learn the basics of preservation. Anthropomorphic is the attribution of human characteristics onto animals, nature or inanimate objects. Using miniature accessories, students will be encouraged to anthropomorphise their mice. Standing, sitting or sleeping, holding a small pipe or book, donning a top hat or a tricorn, we will transform your mice into a fun parody of human life.

About the Course Leader

Margot Magpie is a member of the UK Guild for Taxidermists. She teaches mouse, hamster, guinea pig, bird and rabbit taxidermy across the UK, including the Last Tuesday Society in London. Her work has appeared on tour with Lana Del Rey, at the Science Museum and she has designed taxidermy fascinators for musician Amanda Palmer. She blogs about her thoughts and experiences at ofcorpsetaxidermy.wordpress.com

Ticket Information

We have a limited number of parent/ guardian and child seats available at £70. You will work together on one mouse during the day. Parents/ Guardians need to be prepared to skin and gut if needed, and to supervise their child at all times (we'll be working with sharp scalpels). The extra £10 on the ticket will cover the cost of lunch.
