October 2 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm
SCORPION MOUNTING WORKSHOP –
Single Ticket – $65 (US)
Better in pairs (2 tickets) – $100
This workshop covers the techniques of preserving and mounting black forest scorpions; Heterometrus laoticus to be exact. That’s right, these guys are actually big enough to wire and stuff (7 inches including tail), so we can classify this as a perfect marriage between arthropod mounting and taxidermy. We will be using an epoxy resin clay for extra added resilience.
Each participant will go home with their very own scorp, what happens after that is between you and your maker. The specimen you receive has been made flexible and soft, so they are ready for you to release that imagination.
The Meddling with Nature crew will show you the ins and outs of preserving, mounting and displaying these pinchy pokey little critters. Meddlers big and small, armed with their new found knowledge, will enjoy this DIY opportunity to mount and take home your very own exotic specimen.
Participants will not only learn about the unique features of large insects but will also learn all the techniques needed to mount any arthropod. (Even lobsters!)
Because of the intensity of the project, we are limited to only 4-5 seats to ensure everyone gets our full attention.
Event begins at 8:00 pm. Feel free to arrive early to browse through the shop, enjoy some drinks, snacks and get settled in. And as usual… water, cheap beer and lite snacks will be available but feel free to bring your own fancy treats if you so desire.
8:00pm – 10:00pm
