Insect Taxidermy

23 June 2018 14:00 - 17:30

Location: Wellcome Collection 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE, UK.

Event description

These workshops are for anyone aged 14-19. 

Join us and learn how to display insects in the style of museum specimens. You can come individually or as a group of friends. Over the course of the session you will learn more about insect mounting and have the opportunity to mount your own (sustainably sourced) cricket or butterfly. Our experts will supply all of the equipment so you only need to bring yourself. Your specimen will be available for you to collect and keep the following Saturday.

The workshops will be led by two expert entomologists, Dr Tim Cockerill and Lucia Chmurova.

The workshops will take place in our Studio on level 1. When you enter the museum head up the stairs or take the lift to floor 1 and follow the signs. Each workshop has 25 spaces available. Sign up will open at 13.30 in the Studio. Places are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.

These workshops are for anyone aged 14-19. If you're visiting the museum with parents they are welcome to drop you off at our Studio.

This event is part of Saturday Studio:
Saturday Studio is our monthly programme of interactive workshops for people aged 14-19. They're led by experts from a variety of creative fields, and across the series you'll get to develop skills in photography, dance, digital journalism and more.
