Dapper Critter Taxidermy Class

November 15, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


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!

Where: Hive and Forge in Salem MA

When: Sunday November 15th, 2020 Class runs 12pm-4pm

Who: Working alongside licensed taxidermist Nicole Baldelli. She is the owner of the businesses Nikki Deerest Novelty Taxidermy and Lone Fox Taxidermy. She has over 5 years of taxidermy experience and a wide range of background with art and animals.

Details: This class is 18+ as we will be working with sharp objects.

Parking: There is a lot next to Hive and Forge where you can park. Salem also has multiple parking garages and lots in the area.

What’s included: All basic supplies needed to complete your taxidermy piece. We will also provide some light refreshments.

FYI: Bow ties WILL be provided in a variety of colors!

Masks are required while in the workshop & establishment.

***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.
