Description

Rest in Pieces invites existing students from the 1-day beginner taxidermy class or participants who have completed the DIY Revival kit to join our 2-day intermediate Rabbit class.

Throughout the 2-day workshop (9 - 7pm both Saturday and Sunday) we will lead you further down the taxidermy rabbit hole, building upon and refining your skills in skinning, fleshing, preserving, and mounting a complete specimen. You will also be guided through the traditional torso building technique of soft body wrapping and learn some of the basics of warm water maceration and beetle feeding. 

At the end of the 2-day workshop, you will walk away with a gorgeous rabbit in your choice of one of three poses: standing, sitting or lying down. You will also have the option of purchasing a take home kit to practice your newly acquired skills in your own time.

As usual, the RIP team will take care of everything for you. All necessary tools along with your specimen, apron, food, drinks, and even wine will be provided on the day.


Would you like to book a take home kit?

Workshop + Kit contains the following:

- Frozen Rabbit 

- Tools for skinning and mounting your specimen

- Products for cleaning, fleshing, and specimen preparation

- List of instructions used during the 2-day workshop 

We will also have standing domes for sale if you'd like to do your rabbit in a standing pose.

Please note: if you are flying in from interstate and want a take home kit, you will need to have checked in luggage as many of the sharp items will not be accepted in hand luggage.
