Raccoon Shoulder Mount Class


  • Brooklyn Taxidermy 681 Morgan Avenue Floor 2 Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

We invite you to join taxidermist Amber Maykut for a beginners class in raccoon taxidermy. All materials, including an ethically sourced, skinned and tanned raccoon, professional quality raccoon taxidermy form or mannequin, glass eyes, ear liners, etc., will be provided for each student to learn the taxidermy mounting process. Each class member will leave class with their own taxidermy raccoon shoulder mount on a wood plaque, ready to hang on the wall. Class cost is $300. All classes are BYOB if you like. No refunds can be given if you miss or cancel a class. Students may choose to return to the studio 1 week after the class to do a free 1 hour finishing work lesson on their piece to learn to epoxy, airbrush, and groom their creation. 


Please note: No former taxidermy experience is required. No harsh or dangerous chemicals are used. Everyone will be provided with gloves. All animals are disease free and were already deceased, no specimens are killed for the sake of taxidermy. 

Gift certificates: When purchasing the gift certificate option, you will be emailed a PDF gift certificate with a one year expiration date from date of purchase. The recipient can then look at the class calendar and email us to confirm the class they wish to attend. The value of the gift certificate can alternately be put towards any other type of class.
