I can teach you the age-old craft of taxidermy using a mouse or I can teach you how to clean and prepare animal bones for science, display, or art!
Most people who take my classes are surprised at how clean and non-gory taxidermy is! Let me show you! Do note: All deaths are unrelated to the art. A true taxidermist must possess love and respect for animal life to learn the habits and anatomy of their specimens.
I'm open to teaching young students as well! Let me know if you have a child or teen interested in taxidermy or bone cleaning and we can set something up as well.
Training & Qualifications
-I have 5 years working experience and underneath other trained professionals in the craft of taxidermy.
-I have taught private and group taxidermy classes to students for around 4 years. Noted classes were at Kirk Von Hammett's Fear Festevil, Rothick Art Haus, and at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum
-I received my bachelor's degree in studio art from CSUSB in 2013
-I have a few celebrity clients (who I can't mention here)
Availability & Preferences
Open - but we will set a date so I can prepare materials.
About Lauren Kane
I am a professional pet aftercare specialist, taxidermist, artist, pet keeper, and animal lover (even the creepy crawly ones). My main focus is on that of my business, Precious Creature Taxidermy ...and Pet Aftercare. I provide alternative services to pet owners when their animals pass away: taxidermy, bone cleaning, coat preservation, and private cremation. It's been very rewarding to be entrusted with my clients' precious babies and giving them the dignified care they deserve. I'm also a HUGE animal lover (if you haven't yet guessed). I own a whippet, Laika, a canary named Little G, and two rats named Akeley and Little Moe. I have years of experience working with and keeping cats, rabbits, snakes, lizards, tarantulas and other invertebrates. I also used to volunteer with a wild bird rehabilitator and have a little experience with wildlife rescue.show moreOpen to other proposals
