Get Stuffed! Learn The Art Of Taxidermy At The Idler

In case you’ve missed the hoards of animals in shop windows lately, taxidermy is back, in a big way. And if you’re lacking that crucial stuffed animal on your mantelpiece, the Idler Academy has the solution…

A single day of taxidermy tuition with Mabel Edwards will set you up with all the taxidermy basics, whether you want to create your own little masterpiece, or you’re just curious about the process.

With the help and tutelage of fine art taxidermist Edwards, you will create a life-like mount of a mouse, but students are welcome to bring along any miniature props if they fancy the look of anthropomorphic taxidermy – think micro top hats, (very) small swords and, ahem, mini dresses…

A light lunch and G&T will be provided.

The Idler Academy; 5 October; 81 Westbourne Park Road, W2 5QH;; £70; 11:00
