In this one day taxidermy class, you'll be learning how to skin, prep, and mount a life-size grey squirrel. We'll be going over all the skills to professionally prepare a dry preserved squirrel. While this class is perfect for beginners looking to start a career or hobby in taxidermy, this class is also great for someone looking to further their craft.

***No animals used for my classes are harmed for the purpose of taxidermy. The squirrels harvested for this class were hunted locally as part of normal pest control. We have put them to use in this training workshop so that they are not wasted.
