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 baby Chick class. 

Throughout the workshop Nat will build upon and refine your skills in skinnning, fleshing, preserving, and mounting a complete specimen. You will also be guided through the traditional torso building technique of soft body wrapping and learn to preserve the feet with injections.

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with a gorgeous Baby Chick and be given the option to purchase a wooden base or a wooden base and chick-sized dome to mount your specimen from the class on. 

And of course we have a take home kit available to purchase so you can 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, snacks, drinks, and wine will be provided on the day.

Would you like to book a take home kit?

A big heart felt thank you to Nat and her wonderful helper Jason for an amazing day. It was such a great class and such a comfortable and friendly environment in which to do it in. I felt very supported ever step of the way, informed, learnt some great new techniques and had hilarious fun while I was at it. What a wonderful team and a great group of Brisbane students with which to explore more of this new hobby with. Would definitely thoroughly recommend this class to anyone wanting to take their beginner taxidermy skills to a new level. I got a Take home kit and can't wait to go home and practice my new skills. Love your work Rest in Pieces. I can't wait for your next lot of classes!

I had the best time ever. It was such fun. Nat was a terrific teacher. Jason and Sofia were excellent support staff and attended to our every need. Not only learnt exciting new skill, but met such lovely, friendly, fun people.

The venue was incredible, walking into (what basically looked like a shed from outside!) the building you instantly get the vibe that this is not going to be an average day. Jazz music accompanied by stuffed animals, books on taxidermy, and tables with 'surgical' equipment and fresh fruit platters plus nicely brewed coffee (thankfully on separate tables to the taxidermy!) certainly gets your curiosity started from get go. Both Natalie and Jason were very welcoming and took every measure to ensure that attendees were full of good food and great drinks, and not to mention keeping cool (kudos to Jason for being a human air conditioner). Then when it came time to get stuffing, Natalie provided fantastic detail and patience with showing all members of the class the steps required to get a nice little chicken at the end. Personally, I had not attended the beginners workshop and had done the DIY Kit at home which (while the instructions are fantastic) had me a little worried as to how I would go doing an intermediate class. But with Natalie and Jason's help I came out of the class with new and improved skills excited to keep learning this, well, art form.
