This class will introduce students to the process and techniques behind basic small mammal taxidermy. Students will learn how to prep, preserve, mount, and position the animal (Students will be shown how to properly and safely remove the tail bones and meat completely.) Basic armatures will be used and students will learn how to carve head forms. We will discuss how to properly mold items for taxidermy use at home.

Students are encouraged to bring in any props they may want to dress the animal up in. I will provide all specimens, materials, and tools for the class. Each student will leave with his or her own finished mount.
