The term taxidermy comes from Latin meaning ‘moving skin’. In this 4-hour workshop, students will learn how to skin and stuff a mouse, wire up limbs and learn the basics of preservation.
Anthropomorphic is the attribution of human characteristics onto animals, nature or inanimate objects. Using miniature accessories, students will be encouraged to anthropomorphise their mice. Standing, sitting or sleeping, holding a small pipe or book, donning a top hat or a tricorn, we will transform your mice into a fun parody of human life.
