Why buy from us?
Welcome to the Taxidermy School! The taxidermy classes are very popular and regularly sell out. During the workshops, you'll learn how to skin, prepare, preserve, mount and position a rodent. The London-based taxidermy courses focus on both the traditional craft of naturalist taxidermy and the art of anthropomorphism, which became popular in the Victorian era. With naturalistic taxidermy, your animal is in a natural pose in a natural setting. Anthropomorphic taxidermy means striking a more unusual pose and sticking to it, be it a mouse riding a motorbike, guinea pigs playing the saxophones, or a rat dressed as D'Artagnan. These beginner taxidermy classes have been divided into Bronze, Silver, and Gold categories and they vary in length depending on the type/complexity of animal chosen. The most popular is mouse taxidermy in the Bronze category. If you fancy something even more fantastical, try a winged or two-headed rat in a rogue Silver workshop. And if you want to go big, you can even stuff squirrels or rabbits if you opt for the Gold taxidermy session. All ethically sourced specimens, taxidermy tools, and materials are provided, and no dangerous chemicals are involved. You will have to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in as you prepare the animal though, so it's not for the fainthearted. The course is run by a Guild of Taxidermists qualified specialist and the school runs its workshops at venues in East London. After the workshop, you get to take home your creation. A mouse reading sheet music or a squirrel dressed in a top hat and tails perched on your mantlepiece would be a quirky talking point indeed!
