Coming Soon: Butterfly Pinning Workshop

May 24, 2020 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Tank

Head’s up: this event is slated for the date indicated, but event details are subject to change without notice as we continue to comply with guidelines set out by city and state officials to keep our hometown safe.

In this class, you will learn how to work with dried butterflies and insects! These techniques (and preparation involved) have not changed since Victorian times, and are still used by museums, photographers, and artists around the world.

You will be provided with:

  • One practice butterfly
  • One world-wide beautiful moth or butterfly
  • Reusable foam pinning board
  • All necessary pins, paper strips, etc
    Step-by-Step guidance working your pinning process
  • Everyone will leave class with their pinned butterfly and a good understanding of working with dried insects from the leading source for providing preserved specimens for collectors, artists, and enthusiasts – The Butterfly Company.
  • New knowledge: in addition to a brief discussion about the science of butterflies and moths, we will also cover the importance of working with ethically and sustainably sourced insects from around the world.

All butterfly specimens are farm raised butterflies from around the world that died from natural causes.

Class is open to adults and kids 12+ with parental supervision.
Tickets coming soon!
