About the Event

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.

Pricing: Full ticket price is $350 / if you wish to sign up with a deposit please use coupon code "$150 deposit GS" at checkout and the remaining balance of $200 will be due at the class via cash, check, card, Paypal, or Venmo.

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 8 years of taxidermy experience and a wide range of background with art and animals.

Details: All students are required to sign a consent form at the beginning of class. Ages 13-17 will need a parent or guardian to sign as well. 

What's included: All basic supplies needed to complete your taxidermy piece including professional quality taxidermy form in a sitting pose. I'll also have some supplies on hand to mount them on and some nature props if you'd like to decorate them. I encourage everyone to get creative and bring whatever props they'd like! 

We will have bottled water and light snacks on hand. Please feel free to bring something more substantial for yourself if needed! 

Class sizes are limited to 12 students. Parents, family members, etc who are not paid students are unable to remain in the studio during the class.

Special discount: Trainmasters Inn & Steaming Tender Restuarant

For any students attending the workshop, you are able to use the discount "LONEFOX" to get 10% off at the Trainmasters Inn located in Palmer, MA as well as at the Steaming Tender Restuarant right around the corner from the workshop. The discount is good for the day before the class as well as the day of the class. Please have on hand your class ticket to show you are attending the class in conjunction with your discount on arrival at both locations. We have many students that come from afar to attend these workshops so it is wonderful to be able to provide you all with a discount to use. The Steaming Tender is an amazing and unique dining experience, the perfect way to complete your day after the class. 

***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.

Please email if you have any questions!
