DESCRIPTION

Join expert taxidermist Tonja Grung for an amusing, fascinating and instructive evening as she shows you how to turn a humble crab into a visually amusing oddity for you to take home and enjoy - or as present for that special someone.  Victorian Taxidermists like Walter Potter created the most amazing, amusing and bizarre tableau out of crabs - sadly we have been unable to find any twentieth century examples - but hopefully with you help we can revive this most fascinating and rewarding of crafts
