Anna Schoo | The WIRED Lab | email@example.com
Natalie Delaney-John started Australia’s first ever taxidermy workshops in 2014. She quickly recognised a need for greater access to the dying arts – ‘dying’ both in terms of skill sets no longer being taught in this country as well as a safe space to engage in dialogue on topics surrounding death.
Through the expansion and popularity of her curriculum it has become clear that the bookishness of modern science and the elitism of academia can often serve to isolate people or prevent access to this rich and rewarding knowledgebase.
Natalie’s unique education model has seen her and her team tour nationally and internationally. Together they have taught people from all walks of life including those with a curious mind through to museum staff, teaching faculty, lecturers and academic students.
The current suite of knowledge includes:
- Skeletal Articulation
- Entomology (butterfly and moth pinning and preservation)
This project is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
The Wired Lab is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
