We are currently undergoing some changes and are not offering any lessons at this time.
We are still happy to answer questions and offer advice, so please get in touch if you have any
queries we can help with. We are also still open for commision work,
and ready made pieces are available on our Etsy shop.
Here at The Curious Menagerie we provide a variety of one-day taxidermy courses to give you the skills to start doing taxidermy projects of your own. All our classes are suitable for those with no experience whatsoever and all materials will be provided.
Our one day courses include:
Mouse class - £60
Bird taxidermy class - £150
Rat taxidermy class - £100
Squirrel taxidermy class - £150
Butterfly / moth class - £70
We also offer 2 day bird and squirrel classes where you will learn more detailed techniques,
and spend time learning how to make your own mannequin.
In our classes you will learn all the stages of taxidermy from skinning and cleaning to tanning, mounting and finishing, and you will leave with your completed piece by the end of the class. Class sizes are always kept very small to ensure each person gets plenty of time for one to one tuition when required. In addition to our full day classes, refreshments and lunch will be provided.
