Dapper Critter Taxidermy Class
November 15, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm$200
In this one day taxidermy class, you’ll be learning how to skin, prep, and mount a small half lifesize novelty critter. We’ll be going over all of the details so that you learn the skills you need to start basic taxidermy. This is a great gateway into the world of this unique art form!
This class you get to choose between a rabbit, rat, or guinea pig!

***No animals used for my classes are harmed for the purpose of taxidermy. I work with breeders, friends, and fellow good Samaritans to source animals that have either died naturally or are a result of the farming/meat industry. All remains are used and nothing goes to waste.
