UPDATE Due to the cancellation or postponement of all of the Roadshow's 2020 bookings, including Glastonbury, Pembroke, Isle of Man, and lots more across UK, there has been a return to making creatures full time 7 days a week, and the large backlog has been nearly cleared. Currently making Dolphins for British Divers, having finished seals for Cornwall Seal Research Project, and then there are more seals and other creatures in the order book
LIFE SIZED MARINE MAMMAL MODELS MADE TO ORDER
.........including dolphins porpoises and seals, for rescue training and for roadshows, and sent all over the world. We often get vintage creatures, ones we made 20 years ago, coming back to the Whaleworkshop for renovation, proving it definitely pays to buy quality handmade items that can be repaired, rather than cheap throw-away stuff.
See a previous photoalbum from 2017, titled Marine Mammal Rescue Training Creatures, for lots of info and pictures on some of the past creations and how they are being used around the world
This 2020 photoalbum illustrates the different species of Marine Mammals that we make most often, how we repair and renovate them, and how we improve the design based on user feedback and wear and tear experience.
Most of the Whaleworkshop output is providing the Roadshow, as shown in other photoalbums, and we only make creatures for others when we are not working somewhere with the Roadshow.
We do not have a stock of ready-made creatures to sell, they are all made to order. If you want a handmade rescue training creature, or a life-like display model for your own outreach project, get in touch early on and place your order, then wait patiently until it gets made. There is not a factory in China churning them out, and there is a backlog of previous orders, so order and be patient!
2020 onwards looks like a busy decade for the ever popular school and public roadshows, so there will probably only be 2-3 months each year to make creatures. We already work 7 days a week., so no scope to increase production. Please be patient if you want a creature made. Thank you
