Margot Magpie, leading taxidermy artist from London, takes you through the step-by-step process of mouse taxidermy: from ethically sourcing your rodents, to preservation, stuffing, and positioning. By the end, you’ll have a happy little mouse, a quirky talking point for your living room and a new experience to tell your friends about. Her work has been worn by the likes of the Chirurgeon’s Apprentice, Lindsey Fitzharris, and musician Amanda Palmer, and has appeared on tour with Lana Del Rey, and at the Science Museum London. She blogs about her thoughts and experiences for the Huffpost UK and on ofcorpsetaxidermy.wordpress.com
Margot Magpie is a member of the UK Guild for Taxidermists and teaches mouse, hamster, guinea pig, bird and rabbit taxidermy at A Curious Invitation in London, where her book Mouse Taxidermy: A Field Guide is starting a stimulating conversation about death, preservation, and taxidermy around the world.
