Beginner Entomology
Saturday 21st of July - 9:00am - 2:00pm


Prey Taxidermy is joining forces with Rest in Pieces  to bring you this gorgeous butterfly and moth pinning workshop

Learn how to prepare your own insect specimens with Jason Penfold of Austrailia's Rest in Pieces while you enjoy bubbles and sweet treats in a unique setting.

Throughout the day, Jason will guide you through the fascinating world of entomology. You will learn how to rehydrate your specimens, how to create your own pinning board, how to pin specimens in 3 different styles and learn how to unpin and present your feature specimen in a shadow box.

At the end of the day you will walk away with the 3 practice butterflies & your chosen feature specimen (Ulysses Butterfly or Death's Head Hawkmoth). You will also take home a shadow box to mount your beautiful creation in.

On the day you can just sit back and get creative because everything will be taken care of for you. All the necessary tools along with your specimens, morning tea and a glass (or seven) of bubbles will be provided.

This class is for adults 18 and older. Sorry, no exceptions. 

The course cost also includes a take home kit so that you can practice your newly acquired skills in your own time.

The Take-Home Kit includes:

  • - A Death's Head Hawkmoth or Ulysses to work on at home (we will email you once you’ve booked to ask which you’d prefer to take home)
  • - 3 additional practice specimens
  • - The complete set of the tools used in the workshop
  • - An additional shadow box
  • - List of instructions used on the day will be emailed to you
Space is limited and booking will close June 11th!

All classes will take place at Prey Taxidermy in downtown LA.
