Meddling with Nature and Prehistoria Natural History Centre are proud to announce the first run of workshops together - LETS MOUNT SOME BUTTERFLIES!
For our first workshops ($45.00 at the door) we will be working on the beautifully iridescent Urania sunset moth. These delicate critters can seem like a daunting challenge for a first time mounter, but with a little knowledge and a guiding hand, you will be able to start collecting specimens and displaying them yourself!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or hit up the Butterfly Mounting Class product listing on www.SkullStore.ca to reserve your space, as seating is limited! There are Saturday and Sunday classes available.
We will talk about several preservation methods and also different ways to present your sweet flutterby. We will also be bringing a few extra specimens for the “heavy handed.” If at first you don't succeed, trade in your broken baby and give it another go. Each participant will go home with their very own pinned specimen as well as a handy educational guide for future reference in your endeavours in entomology!
Doors open at 12:00pm on both days, additional specimens of various species will be available for purchase if you have found that you have caught the mounting bug. Save some time to check out the Prehistoria collection and do a bit of shopping for oddities as well at the adjoining Skull Store!
