This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.
Taxidermy. It’s powerful stuff. Creative and clever in equal measure, the craft is the subject of a fascinating talk at this year’s festival. In Stuffed, Jack Fishwick, one of the UK’s leading taxidermists, will be taking you on a fascinating tour under the skin of the craft, peeling away the layers of history and ethics that surround this often misunderstood practice. There will also be a practical demonstration and handling session at the end.
