If you are looking for something
weird different to do tonight look no further. The Diesel School Of Island are holding a taxidermy night with Charlie Tuesday Gates. All you need to do is find a dead animal, take it along and Charlie will perform taxidermy on an animal of your choice. This does NOT mean we are saying go and kill an animal, we are not. If you’re that desperate to see how it is done grab a cuddly toy and pretend!
“Stuffing celeb” Charlie will talk the audience through her DIY process (emphasis is heavily on the DIY aspect). Delivered in a ‘shopping channel’ style, she’ll give handy hints & tips for using basic everyday objects, where to source animal parts legally personal preservation methods, giving a unique insight into this seemingly dark art and mind of an artist. This will be the 4th live demonstration, performance, exhibition artist talk rolled into one that Charlie has presented.
Entry is free as part of the Diesel School of Island Life but you will need to hot foot it down to your local Diesel store and and pick up a Diesel Island Passport.
Diesel School of Island Life is a series of lessons, field trips, screenings parties featuring inspiring industry experts and pioneers from creative and cultural fields. If taxidermy isn’t your thing check out the other events planned.
