Taxidermy is the only way to spend forever with the ones you love.
In this two-day workshop for all levels of experience, you’ll learn to skin, preserve, stuff and position a bird. From the first incision in the paper-thin skin to wiring up the wings, you’ll learn step-by-step and have a lovely specimen to take home, mount and display.
Your Tutor: Shannon Harmon
Shannon teaches taxidermy regularly in London for the Last Tuesday Society and blogs about her experiences at ofcorpsetaxidermy.wordpress.com. She also creates and sells bird wing fascinators and anthropomorphic animals as Of Corpse Taxidermy and Couture.
When & Where
Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture.
We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new & emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.
Our courses are learning for doers. Every one of our courses, whether it's electronics or coding, writing or making, is powered by the same magic. Bring your curiosity and a little bit of imagination, and we'll amaze you with what you can do!
Our main base of operations is a three-storey, 3000 square foot Industrial Revolution-era former weavers’ cottage centrally located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We are less than ten minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria train stations, and just two minutes walk from the Arndale Shopping Centre.
