Learn about the fascinating anatomy of mammals and traditional mammal taxidermy. This class is designed for beginners with an interest in taxidermy. No matter the experience level, all are welcome!

Students will learn everything they need to create their very own mouse taxidermy mount, from proper skinning, degreasing/washing to sculpting, mounting, and finishing. Students will watch a skinning and fleshing demonstration, and proceed to work with professionally-cleaned and tanned skins. This will allow the students to focus on the finer details of creating a finished piece, and practice specific mounting techniques, like carving, fitting, and modifying a form, sewing, assembly, and grooming. We will discuss how to use reference and study anatomy practically for beginner’s taxidermy. Our subject will be the domestic mouse. Their beady eyes and furry feet dart across our parks, sidewalks, and sometimes our homes causing alarm, but domestic mice are loving companions doted on by many. These adorable mammals are lovely subjects for taxidermy, as many people have encountered them, and they can be posed naturalistically or anthropomorphically, depending on your preference. These mice are legally and sustainably sourced; they are not taken for the sake of taxidermy. Students will go home with their custom-made creations, instructions for maintaining their pieces, and newfound or nourished love of taxidermy.
