How to stuff a mouse... the rise of taxidermy

As a hobby it might seem rather macabre, but according to recent headlines the art of taxidermy is becoming popular once again, as people vie to learn how to stuff anything from a mouse to a rabbit.

The craft has been given a modern twist by artists such as Polly Morgan, and celebrity fans include singer Ellie Goulding - who has a growing collection of quirky examples.

Margot Magpie is a member of the UK Guild of Taxidermists and runs lessons in the art of taxidermy in London. She joins us to demonstrate how to stuff and position a mouse.
