Due to an increased demand for basic training in taxidermy techniques, tuition can now be provided for a single day or up to a week. Tuition can be arranged throughout the year at a mutually convenient time.

A single day’s tuition would involve you working on one bird, taking you through the whole process from skinning to mounting it.

Four or five day’s tuition would involve you working on two birds and also on a small mammal, again taking you through the whole process from skinning to mounting them.

All materials and tools will be provided and you will be able to take away the completed mounts.

Teas, coffees and a sandwich lunch will also be provided.

You will be working in an outside building so best to wear suitable clothing.

It is also recommended that you have an up to date tetanus injection as you will be handling dead animals that can carry different bacteria. You will also be working with various surgical tools so need to be aware that there may be the risk of cuts and abrasions. Due to the nature of all this it is not possible for me to get insurance to cover you.

Any illnesses or allergies, e.g. diabetes, epilepsy should also be disclosed due to the kind of work and tools involved.

If you wish to discuss any of the above further or have any questions please make contact on 0131 336 1916.

1 day = 250
