Squirrel Taxidermy Workshop

Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street

Taxidermy Squirrel

Make your very own taxidermy squirrel using professional techniques, with no experience necessary! Starting with a sustainably sourced hide, students will learn how to use a commercially-made head form and a custom-wrapped body to create a beautiful mount. Students will choose from a variety of wood bases to create the finished product. Each student will leave with a finished squirrel ready for a two-week drying period, after which it can be proudly displayed. A photographic guide to the skinning process will be provided to all students.

This class starts promptly at 10 am and ends between 2 and 3 pm. Due to the time-sensitive nature of the taxidermy process, students who are delayed are asked to call ahead so we know when to expect you. A contact phone number will be provided after you are registered. We will accommodate late arrivals to the best of our ability but late students are not guaranteed to finish their projects during designated class time. This class is open to adults 18 and older.
