WIRED OPEN LABS 2020: CORROSION CASTING

hero

AFTER THREE YEARS OF SELL OUT WORKSHOPS THE WIRED LAB WELCOMES BACK
REST IN PIECES AS PART OF THE WIRED OPEN LABS WORKSHOP SERIES 2020

Gavin Burland, Manager of Technical Operations, Sydney School of Veterinary Science has joined the RIP team.
Together, we will be launching Australia's first 2-day beginner Corrosion Casting Workshop.

IN THIS 2 DAY WORKSHOP YOU WILL LEARN:

Throughout Day 1 you will get hands on and learn how to prepare and identify the anatomy, tie off and resin inject a sheep's heart. You will also attend an informative seminar on the history of corrosion casting and learn how to chemically macerate your specimen. 

On day 2 you will prepare your own pre-macerated specimen for mounting and will learn the basics of installation. 

Who Should Attend?

Adults with a curious mind. If you are under 18 please contact us prior to booking.

What You'll Get

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with a deeper knowledge of this fascinating scientific process and your very own gorgeous corrosion cast heart in a glass dome. 

As usual, the RIP team will take care of everything for you. All necessary tools along with your specimen, dome, apron, snacks, drinks, lunch and even wine will be provided throughout.

You will also have the option of purchasing a take home kit to practice your newly acquired skills in your own time.

ABOUT NATALIE

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:

-    Taxidermy
-    Skeletal Articulation
-    Entomology (butterfly and moth pinning and preservation)
-    Plastination
