Taxidermy is the only way to spend forever with the ones you love.
In this two-day workshop for all levels of experience, you’ll learn to skin, preserve, stuff and position a bird. From the first incision in the paper-thin skin to wiring up the wings, you’ll learn step-by-step and have a lovely specimen to take home, mount and display.
