The UK’s leading contemporary taxidermy artist, Polly Morgan, will give a live demonstration of her art process and discuss the inspiration behind her works.

Hailed as Britain’s top taxidermist by street artist, Banksy, fans of Polly’s work include Damien Hirst and Kate Moss.  Polly is one of the most collectable artists of her generation and was Tim Marlow’s nomination for best up-and-coming artist.

The event is free and no booking is required but places will be allocated on a first come basis. It will be filmed for Sky Arts.  Polly is happy to take questions as she performs her taxidermy.

The Waterhouse Café will be open from 4pm to 7pm serving light bites and refreshments.

Signed copies of Polly’s book, Psychopomps, will be available to buy on the evening.

All taxidermied animals are either road casualties or have been donated to the artist by pet owners and vets after natural or unpreventable deaths.
