Description

Heart preservation Christmas Special - "Snow Globes" (OPTIONAL)

Attend a four hour workshop at Barts Pathology Museum to learn the exact techniques used to preserve human specimens in pathology collections today. The museum's technical curator, Carla Valentine (trained at The Royal College of Surgeons, UCL Pathology Collections and The Gordon at Kings) will guide you through the current method as you 'pot' a fixed lamb’s heart to take home with you. As a Christmas treat you will have the option to turn the usual heart in a jar into a festive decoration by adding fake snow and glitter. There will also be green ribbon as well as red ribbon available and Christmas snacks. The drink will be a Mulled Heartini!

Included is a brief history of previous preservation techniques honed by masters such as Frederik Ruysch and John Hunter accompanied by a spectacularly illustrated talk full of incredible facts (including Christmas additions), a mulled Heartini cocktail made with Hendrick's gin, and all materials used - including a beautiful tote bag to carry your precious pot home in (all artwork designed by Lozzy Bones)

***Arrive at 1pm for a 1:30PM start

***There is time to view the collection

***No toxic fluids are used in this class and all PPE is provided

Get into the Christmas Spirit and dress for the season!
