A Field Guide offers consistently sold out taxidermy courses in London. Students are introduced to the art of anthropomorphism, the attribution of human characteristics to animals, plants or non-living things. This practice was most famously realized by the Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter in his Museum of Curiosities which featured wonderful bestial dioramas from a classroom of 48 bunnies in 'Rabbit School' to a wedding party of kittens dressed in morning coats and lace dresses with frilly knickers.
All rodents, insects and birds are ethically sourced and were not killed specifically for these workshops.
