This beginner’s class will introduce you to the fascinating and intricate world of entomology – the art of insect preservation. Students will learn all the basics on how to re-hydrate and relax specimens, including how to construct their own relaxing chamber at home. Then learn handling techniques, follow along step-by-step to spread and mount their specimen. All stages will be guided and students can ask as many questions as needed.


We will also discuss how to pose, display and maintain your piece to ensure a lasting artwork you can be proud of.

Students take home their own prepared insect, a spreading board that can be used for future projects, and the knowledge to create their own pieces in the future.
