Other news: Taxidermy Workshop I held my first D.I.Y taxidermy workshop last weekend at the Fish Bar Gallery, Dalston.  I am working on the feature film 'BORROWED TIME'- A dark comedy written and directed by Jules Bishop. The workshop was a one off making session/lesson, creating stuffeds to be used in the home of one of the main characters- PHILLIP: A bitter, twisted and lonely old bastard…with only a bizarre collection stuffed animals to keep him company.... This D.I.Y taxidermy crash course took twelve real people inside several squirrels and demonstrated how to stuff them us

When is D.I.Y Taxidermy IIII?

 D.I.Y Taxidermy IIII  LIVE Tuesday 3rd MAY RED Gallery  Rivington street The 4th live demonstration, performance, exhibition  & artist talk all rolled into one.   'A bit like a science lesson from a substitute teacher...who is really an artist.'   In about an hour I will talk the audience through my D.I.Y process (emphasis is heavily on the D.I.Y aspect). Delivered in a 'shopping channel' style, I'll give you handy hints & tips for using basic everyday objects, where to source animal parts legally & personal preservation methods, giving a unique insight into this seemingly dark art and mind of an artist. The audience is encouraged to participate and generally be involved in the creation of a new artwork.   An exhibition will run alongside the show, displaying surreal and bizarre assemblage sculptures of recent finds. The animals are always refuse! I am disgusted by waste, especially the waste of life- the most precious gift of all! These creatures
