What our students are saying
Ewin and Dean teach centuries old, museum quality taxidermy in the most entertaining and throughtfully presented way. We all took home something we were truly proud of. If you dream about trying taxidermy, this workshop is the perfect introduction.
That was the greatest weekend I’ve had in ages!
The space and tool kits were beautiful. With patience and attention to detail each person was guided to build confidence in each task. These incredible masters of taxidermy provide a clearly thrilling experience.
If you’ve ever been intrigued by the art of taxidermy this is the workshop for you. Dean and Ewin are excellent teachers with a wealth of knowledge to share. A little bit gruesome and hugely rewarding. You won’t be disappointed.
