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.
No harsh chemicals are used in class.
Gloves are provided.
All animals are disease/mite free.
Its a long day, bring a snack!
Animals are sourced through roadkill, scraps from other taxidermists, donations, abatement/nuisance work, pet industry casualties, frozen feeders, and discards from the food service industry.
