    The first two weeks of September are already booked solid - Thank you Kati S. and Nicole B.!! It is great to see more and more women get involved in taxidermy. My classes are a fun, safe place for women to learn from another woman! A great class for anyone, beginner or advanced, to learn small mammal techniques. Still booking spots for late September through October!
     

  3. I can't say just how amazing this class was! I took Amy's class in Sept, just about a month ago and have nothing but positive things to say. Amy is truly an amazing artist and just a great a teacher. She worked alongside me and I was able to do my own work and mirror what she did as she went. It was really a great way to learn. I got all of the tools I needed to skin, flesh, and mount my very own bobcat. I came home with a few other animals to work on as well. I'm slowly working my way into the professional taxidermy community and couldn't be happier! I highly recommend Amy's class to anyone looking to learn from a beginner's view or someone that has been in the business a long time. She really has some amazing talents!

    Thanks again Amy!!
