This class is the perfect introduction to the process of taxidermy.

The class is instructed by fine art taxidermist Mabel Edwards, who will guide you step by step in a comprehensive and easy to understand manner. The class is structured to help you create a life-like mount of a mouse but students are free to bring any miniature props with them if they prefer the Walter Potter tradition of anthropomorphic taxidermy! A small selection of props will also be provided. No former experience is necessary.Please note that we use no harsh or dangerous chemicals during this class and all students are provided with gloves.All animals are disease free and no animals were killed for this class. All mice are feeder animals for snakes and lizards. Although there will not be a lot of blood and gore, taxidermy is not for everyone and students are asked to consider this beforebooking their place.
