About this Event

This class will introduce students to the process and techniques behind basic small mammal taxidermy. Students will be shown a quick skinning demonstration and given pre-tanned skins to work with. Bodies will be pre-made and students will be able to position, sew, and pin their creations. Students are encouraged to bring in any props they may want to dress the animal up in.

We will provide all specimens, materials, and tools for the class. Each student will leave with his or her own finished mount. All specimen deaths are not related to the artwork. Everything is long deceased beforehand. Animals are sourced from roadkill when legal, abatement and nuisance removal, donations, pet store and breeder casualties, and scraps from other taxidermists which would often be thrown away.
