An intensive hands-on lesson, in which you transform a deceased rat into a unique and enduring art object.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
You will be guided through the steps of skinning, stuffing, posing, and pinning your specimen. At the end of the day, you will come away with a figure that is set to begin its curing process.
WHAT WILL YOU GET?
You will be provided with a kit that includes:
- rubber gloves
- a rat specimen
- bead eyes
- stitching materials
- and all supplies and the help required to create a finished taxidermic rat.
WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?
Everything required to create a taxidermied rat will be provided.
Feel free to bring props and accessories for your piece.
(Note that an adult rat is about the size of a Barbie doll, but with a more realistic waistline. Keep this in mind when choosing furniture or props.)
