Rest in Pieces - Skeletal Articulation
Rest in Pieces invites you to attend our brand new 2 day skeletal articulation workshop with our newest team member Anthony Wilkes.
Anthony is currently the Senior Technical Officer in Veterinary Anatomy at the University of Adelaide. He brings with him a broad range of technical experience, including anatomical embalming and dissection, but he specialises in skeletal preparation and articulation.
Anthony has worked on a variety of species, both large and small. He learned his skills on small species like rabbits and cats but his more recent work includes some of nature’s greatest giants, such as a Sperm Whale, Elephant, White Rhinoceros and Hippopotamus!
The 2 Day Workshop runs from 10.00pm - 8.00pm on Saturday 31st July & 9.00am - 8.00pm on 1st August.
Throughout the 2 day workshop you will get hands on with the process of skinning and articulation, as well as attend an informative seminar on specimen cleaning and preservation.
At the end of the 2 day workshop, you will walk away with an insight into this fascinating art and you will each have a gorgeous mounted quail skeleton housed in a glass dome.
Everything will be supplied over the 2 days including the quail, tools, glass dome, apron, lunch, snacks, and wine.
No previous taxidermy or skeletal articulation experience is necessary to attend this class.
