This Funzing Experience:

The Natural History Museum is one of London’s most popular destinations but what are the techniques that lie behind the preservation process that immortalised these animals for future study.

In this small class in Bloomsbury, you will be introduced to the processes and techniques behind basic taxidermy. You will learn how to skin, prep, preserve, mount and position your animal.

Please rest assured that all moles are ethically sourced and were not killed for the purpose of taxidermy. They are either salvaged from pest control firms or gamekeepers where they would otherwise have been discarded.
