Led by a professional taxidermist Tonja Grung, owner of Made from the Dead taxidermy, you will be introduced to the world and making process of taxidermy in an alternative and tongue in cheek way
Taking inspiration from our Too Cute exhibition, curated by artist and filmmaker Rachel Mclean, you will be able to see how taxidermy has been presentable in a contemporary way.
A live demonstration of taxidermy will take place before Tonja supplies the group with pre prepared skins. Using butterflies, beetles, mice and chicks, you will combine and create mythical beasts inspired by the collection.
Your day will start with an introduction to Too Cute followed by a tea, coffee and chat for an hour. Then we will move to the taxidermy workshop. This will last approximately 3 hours and will take place in the education suite at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
You will also be able to photograph and print images of your creations at the end of the session.
All skins are ethically sourced by Tonja Grung.
Booking essential, adults only.
