***THERE IS A JACKALOPE UPGRADE OPTION FOR THIS CLASS! If you select the "Jackalope Upgrade" option, you will be provided with jackalope antler ears during the class and you will learn how to attach them to your taxidermy rabbit mount. This upgrade costs an additional $25 per ticket, please specify at checkout in note area if you would like to upgrade. We will invoice you for the upgrade.***

In this taxidermy workshop, we will cover beginner to intermediate techniques used in small mammal taxidermy. Prior taxidermy experience is not required to take this class.

Students will learn to skin the head of the rabbit (it will be skinned up to the head), preserve the skin, sculpt a form and mount their own rabbit. The finished product will be a shoulder mount, similar to the image on this listing.

Class cost includes all materials, including an ethically sourced rabbit and a wood base to display their finished work on, and antlers for those who select the upgrade option. Each student will leave class with their own taxidermy piece, and the knowledge to create their own taxidermy work in the future. 

Class size is limited to 6 students per class for each student to receive maximum step-by-step attention from the instructor to obtain the best end results. The workshop is approximately 5 hours long. Those who are 20 minutes or later to the class will not be able to join, as it will be too difficult to get caught up to the rest of the students.

It is recommended students bring a bag or small box (tissue paper wouldn't hurt either) to transport their completed work back home.

PLEASE NOTE: All rabbits used for the purpose of this workshop are legally and sustainable sourced. No rabbits were killed for the purpose of this class. All rabbits used in this class are provided from the feeder/pet food industry. NO harsh or dangerous chemicals will be used in the process of this workshop. All students will be provided with gloves and sanitary equipment. *Please do not bring any raw, dead or alive animals.
