Everyone’s favorite trash panda is making its way to Paxton Gate for our very first taxidermy raccoon head mount workshop! These highly intelligent and curious creatures are more than just neighborhood nuisance. They are highly adaptable survivors that utilize their curious nature to find solutions to their ever changing habitat. While they may have the seeming filthy nickname of “trash panda”, raccoons are actually very clean animals. A raccoon will rinse its food in water prior to eating it. When there is no water close by, a raccoon will still rub its food to remove debris. Just because you are eating from a trash can doesn’t mean you can’t have decent meal prep.

Since we started doing our taxidermy workshops, we have wanted to do a raccoon workshop and finally we have a source to make it possible. Join us as our master taxidermist leads you through the step by step process of crafting your very own taxidermy raccoon head mount. Each student will be provided with all of the materials needed in creating the taxidermy and will receive hands on instructions each step of the way. No prior experience is required. The instructor, Mr. Vassallo has over thirty-five years experience as a professional taxidermist and teacher. He has traveled Continental North America, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Europe and Africa studying, collecting and preserving wildlife.

Pre-registration required as materials must be prepared for each student and space is VERY limited. Please arrive promptly at the start time. Students are encouraged to bring lunch/snacks. Cancellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to the date of the class. Cancellations will then be converted to credit that can either be used toward merchandise in the store or to enroll in another workshop. Cancellations made less than 72 hours prior to a class or failure to show up to a class will result in no refund or transfer. Class takes place at 870 Valencia St, San Francisco.
