This class will introduce students basic small mammal taxidermy. Each student is provided with their own specimen, which they will skin, flesh, prep, mount, and groom. We will go through the process of carving busts for each mount and will discuss other viable options for outside of class. Everything is supplied and students do not need any prior experience for this class. Each student will leave with their own finished piece.
