Update! And here we are in action. I do like a nice glam taxidermist who lives by Walter Potter.
This Halloween, The Robin Collective will be teaming up with Animal Vegetable Mineral for a totally unique and thoroughly informative tea party.
Learn the ancient art of taxidermy and indulge in an incredible afternoon tea at the Tour de Force Theatre, Hackney. The workshop will be given by Amanda’s Autopsies’ eponymous proprietor, a leader in the field and crusader in the recent resurgence that taxidermy has seen – she has a modern and inventive take on the skill and never uses animals that were killed for the purpose.
Attendees will also be able to dive into the ultimate afternoon tea banquet, mixing modern experimental cooking techniques with time honoured English tradition – alongside Earl Grey and crumpets, visitors can expect to inhale Victoria sponge cake from balloons and sip cucumber sandwich punch.
What goes better with a cup of tea than a selection of delicate patisseries and a spot of animal artistry? Gorge and gouge your way through this macabre adventure and join in on the taxidermy Renaissance!
