Eupatorus gracilicornis!!!  Learn the ends and outs of preserving and mounting your very own 5-horned rhinoceros beetle.   Whether a flat mount or flying, what happens after that is between you and your critter. Framed mount or bell jar baby….the sky is the limit!

Because of the intensity of the project, we are limited to only 4 seats to ensure everyone gets our full attention.  

Ticket includes one 5-horned rhinoceros beetle and one practice beetle (species vary).

Times – Event begins at 6:00 pm. Feel free to arrive early to browse through the shop, enjoy some drinks, snacks and get settled in.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? – There is no age requirement for this workshop but we suggest 10 and up. 

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? – Parking is all on street and free.

What can I bring into the event? – Anything you might want to use in your mount is good to tote along. Be creative! You want your critter to play the banjo? Bring a tiny banjo! Keep in mind that much of things you augment your piece with can be done in post-mount. Come with good or interesting ideas and we will help you realize them!

You can bring insects of your own for mounting advice, but no materials are necessary for the workshop.

Oh, and as usual… some water, wine and/or beer will be available (for participants over 21) but feel free to bring your own treats.

While the specimen you receive has been made flexible and soft, additional dry specimens will be available for purchase.   Don’t worry… we will cover all the things you need to know to get them ready for mounting in your own home!
