Time: 10:00 AM
Cost: €115.50 per person

Always wanted to learn how to make your own wet specimens? Then this is your chance!

In our workshop for Wet Specimen Making, we do not use formaldehyde, but alcohol as a preservative. Formaldehyde is a potentially harmful substance, while alcohol is a safer alternative. Alcohol helps preserve the natural properties of the specimens without harmful effects on humans and the environment.

The workshop will be held in a vintage biology classroom setting, right in our store.

What will we do:
During our 2.5 to 3-hour workshop, each participant will have the opportunity to inject three different specimens (e.g., mouse, hamster, and fish). We'll start with an introduction to the background and process of making wet specimens of animals. Then, we'll guide you step by step through the injection process, using alcohol as a preservative.

You'll learn not only how to safely perform the injections but also how to determine the correct dosage and concentration to preserve the natural properties of the specimens. Additionally, we'll discuss the importance of hygiene and care for the specimens during the process.

At the end of the workshop, you'll take home three of your own injected specimens, each in a sealed container. Moreover, you'll be fully equipped with the knowledge and skills to continue this fascinating hobby at home.

After the workshop, there will be plenty of time to explore and shop in our store.

What to bring:
If needed, reading glasses. (Pen and paper for taking notes, if desired)
