    hello
    Can anyone recommend any good places where I can get lots of interesting natural forms to use for students to draw?

    Things like skulls, bones, dried seed heads, feathers.... etc etc

    I want to get masses of good things for a not too much cost and YES I should have been more organised and collected some in the holiday, but you know how it is...

    Type 'skull' into Ebay's taxidermy section and it'll come up with all sorts of animal skulls. Similarly, typing 'dried seed head' into the craft section will produce a range of different options. If you live near a beach, you'll be likely to find bird skulls which you could then boil to disinfect before using. Your local library or museum may have a collection of skulls and skeletons which they lend out free of charge.
