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 using alternatives to traditional materials and techniques which can often be elusive, expensive and time consuming!
The workshop offered very practical examples on how to use simple materials creatively, proving that it really can be done with just the basic things you have in your cupboards right now!!!
