Squirrel Half Mount Taxidermy Class in Jersey City, NJ (Mounting class, squirrel has been skinned for you)

  • Kanibal & Co. 197 Montgomery Street Jersey City, NJ, 07302 United States (map)

We invite you to join taxidermist Amber Maykut for a beginners class in squirrel taxidermy. All materials, including an ethically sourced, already skinned and tanned squirrel, will be provided for each student to learn the taxidermy mounting process. Each class member will leave class with their own taxidermy squirrel half mount on a wood plaque, ready to hang on the wall. Students are invited to bring any miniature items with which they might like to dress or decorate their squirrel; some props and miniature clothing may also be provided by the teacher for those interested. Class cost includes the lesson, specimen, and all supplies. No refunds can be given for missed or canceled classes. 

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.
