Are you curious about how to work with butterflies and moths and properly preserve them? Join two invertebrate enthusiasts for a hands-on introduction to Lepidotera. This class will teach you about the ecological, environmental, and spiritual importance of moths and butterflies (order Lepidoptera). You will learn about the ways in which butterflies and moths influence our lives today as well as a bit of their history in mythology and science. These incredible creatures can deliver important messages to us if we are open to listening, and this class will give you a greater understanding of these animals.

In addition to the lecture portion of this class, each student will be provided with the supplies and guidance needed to pin 1 beautiful sunset moth. You will bring home a foam pinning board, your pinned insect, and ideas on how to display these beauties in your home. Feel free to bring along a pen and paper for notes.

Supplies included in this series:

-Foam Pinning Board

-Insect Pins and Lepidoptera Strips

-1 Beautiful Sunset Moth (responsibly sourced)


Jess is a Denver-based artist who creates small sculptures and jewelry using elements of nature.
Jess creates imaginative miniature worlds honoring elements of nature and science. These sculptures contain magic in the form of preserved insects, bones, stones, moss, and plants. Inspired by the natural curiosity assemblages of the Victorian Naturalists and the Wildlife Halls of modern science museums, Jess hopes to inspire wonder, curiosity, and understanding for our natural world. Each piece she creates is a reminder of the beauty that lies in death and its importance in the cycle of life.
Jess teaches classes that stitch together magic, art, and science with an aim to inspire her students to to approach the world, and their practice, with endless curiosity.
