Qué harás

Suzette Field would like to introduce you to the world of insect taxidermy. For over 300 years, entomologists and collectors have mounted butterflies and other insects for taxonomic reference or stunning visual displays. Such compilations can be found lurking in old museum archives and are often kept in meticulous condition in display cases and cabinets.

There has been a recent renaissance in the use of insects for artistic display and this class will introduce you to the skills and techniques used in setting butterflies.

The workshop will begin with a talk on the biology of insects with further instruction on the hydration, setting, pinning and drying of specimens.

This is a beginners course with no experience required and you will leave with your own set of framed butterflies. Please note all butterflies are ethically sourced from a conservation project.

Always a keen collector of natural history with an interest in preservation, I have worked in the field and taught taxidermy for over 10 years now. I pursue my craft with a fine art sensibility. I am also a vegetarian and work only animals that have not been killed for the purpose (ie - road kill, natural death, reptile food and pest control).

Suzette was a wonderful host who shared her passion and skills for butterfly pinning. She was patient and an encouraging teacher. She has a beautiful home which she welcomed us into with a lovely home made vegan lunch included. A must try experience!

I really enjoyed this butterfly setting class and would heartily recommend! It was very informative and fun too. Went home with some framed butterflies and a full belly (delicious meal included!) so I think this class is really good value for money - I don’t really think I could fault it.

A very unique and interesting experience! I really enjoyed learning about this technique and Suzette gave great guidance and help when needed. Really happy with the butterflies I have set and am glad I was able to take away the ones that I did not frame during the class.

Suzette was warm and welcomed us into her lovely home to take part in an experience I can only describe as enchanting. The butterfly setting itself was really wonderful, we all had a chance to practice on multiple specimens. The workshop gave us all enough confidence and knowledge to come out with a set of butterflies that we also got to frame. I really appreciated the light lunch and facinating little presentation. It was just a lovely day and I can't recommend the experience any higher!!

Wow, this was a VERY cool experience. If you have any interest at all in butterfly mounting, you could not find a better teacher than Suzette. She absolutely knows what she is doing. She is also very friendly and generous. Her studio is very cool - I just found it to be an outstanding way to spend an afternoon. While the process seemed a bit daunting at first, it was very achievable under Suzette’s guidance. And the end result is a totally professional looking framed butterfly (I chose to frame only one, although you work on more than one butterfly). What a cool, cool thing to spend a few hours learning to do. And to come away with something that looks so good after such a short time! Highly, highly recommended.
