Contact MuseumAnatomy@gmail.com to find out more information on creating a collaborative workshop based on Museum Anatomy for your school or workplace.
Workshops require a minimum of one week for the casting process. If you would prefer a complete Museum Anatomy casting and painting workshop, up two weeks are required. We do travel and can recommend how to find materials in your location.
