Just in time for Halloween, come step inside Prey Taxidermy and learn the secrets of this 'dead art'... if you dare. Ever wonder how taxidermy is done? Thinking about taking a bird or mammal class but not sure what's involved? Need a fun date idea for the eccentric in your life? 

It's time to trick or treat, yo' self. 

This class will be held inside the Prey Taxidermy studio and will feature:

 

  • A hands-on lecture by Allis Markham and Tim Bovard (taxidermist at The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles) on the process of mammal & bird taxidermy.
  • Serval skinning demonstration (Not for the faint of heart.)
  • Preview of Allis' work-in-progress
  • Educational display of 'living impaired' animals
  • Q&A - All your darkest questions answered
  • Refreshments! Spooky-season sodas & sweets.
  • A raffle of an Allis Markham bird!

This is a demonstration course, but students may handle some specimens should they choose. Students will not be using scalpels or tools.
