We are coming back to Sydney and we couldn't be more excited! 

Rest in Pieces is pleased to announce that Gavin Burland the Manager of Technical Operations at the Sydney School of Veterinary Science has joined the team.  Together, we will be launching Australia's first 2-day beginner Corrosion Casting Workshop.

The workshop will run from 12:00pm - 8:00pm on Saturday and 11:00am - 6:00pm on Sunday. 

Throughout Day 1 you will get hands on and learn how to prepare and identify the anatomy, tie off and resin inject a sheep's heart. You will also attend an informative seminar on the history of corrosion casting and learn how to chemically macerate your specimen. 

On day 2 you will prepare your own pre-macerated specimen for mounting and will learn the basics of installation. 

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with a deeper knowledge of this fascinating scientific process and your very own gorgeous corrosion cast heart in a glass dome. 

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, dome, apron, snacks, drinks, lunch and even wine will be provided throughout.

Would you like to book a take home kit?

We have 2 take home kit options listed. Each kit includes: 

- Frozen pluck (specimen) 

- The tools and chemicals for either all of the corrosion casting OR corrosion casting and installation into a glass dome (Please refer to the ticket type for details) 

- The full list of instructions of the 2 day workshop 

If you are flying from interstate and have bought the full take home kit you will need to have checked in luggage. 

We will also be able to advise you of the dimensions of the take home kits in the week prior to the course.

This workshop is a must for anyone even vaguely interested in this process or who wants to have an amazing looking heart cast model to take home at the end of the Workshop. It is well structured and paced for people of any level of previous knowledge in anatomy or this process. Gavin who runs the course is extremely knowledgeable and discusses/demonstrates the process in a way that anyone can understand the process. It also lets you meet and interact with many friendly like-minded individuals who you can openly discuss related topics with. I highly recommend this Workshop.

This is my second class with RIP and Nat is always great to work with. Gavin is incredibly knowledgeable about what he does, and the class is very easy to follow, even if you have no real medical/science background. It’s also pretty amazing to be able to learn something that’s not really taught anywhere else.
