Moth Studios - A Christmas Butterfly Bell Jar

To celebrate the festive season this December, you will have the opportunity to make a beautiful handmade glass bell jar with real entomology butterflies. We will spend one Sunday afternoon with the Castle keep and Moth Studios where we will come together to offer a Christmas one off festive workshop. 

After learning the specialist skill of butterfly pinning, you can then choose from a stunning collection of homegrown and specially-preserved seasonal foliage to create a beautiful glass bell jar decoration to be cherished for Christmases to come. 

Using only the highest quality and most ethically-sourced materials, by the end of the class you will have created a one-off piece to either add to your own collection or give as a special gift, as well as additional preserved specimens to take home and create further pieces with your newly learned skills. 

Fun and informal, this is the perfect class to get you in to the Christmas spirit!

Christmas music, mulled wine and mince pies will be served. 

Please note, all specimens have been obtained after dying of natural causes in ethical butterfly farms.

£45 per person 


Takes place in Harbottle Suite of THE BLACK GATE.
