What you'll do

Two English classics come together in this workshop and teatime with London’s leading taxidermist, Suzette Field. You’ll learn the art and science of preparing, preserving, and mounting—all the basics of taxidermy. Then, you’ll try it yourself (don’t worry, all the subjects have been ethically sourced—reptile food, pest control or roadkill). Choose to leave your handiwork au naturel or dress it up to create a souvenir worthy of a prime spot on your mantlepiece. Students will have a choice between mouse, rat, guinea pig or mole.

Suzette

I’ve been a taxidermist and teacher for over 10 years, and I currently bring a fine art perspective to this work. It might surprise you to know that I’m a vegetarian, and I only use animals that are ethically sourced. It’s my way of connecting with the natural world and appreciating these everyday, but fascinating creatures.
