In this beginner’s class, students will learn everything about basic insect preparation and preservation-choose to work on a beautiful beetle or gorgeous butterfly. Great for kids and adults! Students will select from a variety of responsibly sourced specimens (there will be plenty of each specimen so there will be something unique for everyone). We will discuss harvesting and drying specimen, rehydrating dried specimen, and in class we will practice handling techniques, spreading, mounting, the nuances of posing, display, and maintenance.
Beginner level Taxidermy class making wrapped bodies and pre-made cast heads, all the skills to practice the craft on your own. A variety of anthropomorphic and natural props will be available for use by students to create their own taxidermy rat to keep.
We have a great way to celebrate Earth Day and the spring season, by learning how to make your own macrame plant hangers for all of your favorite houseplants. The class will be instructed by Little Dame Co-Owner, Katie Howard. Materials will be provided, beverages, and you get to pick out a plant to take home with your new, completed plant hangers ♥
