Intro to Taxidermy Class at Mysteria Antiques and Oddities in Woodstock GA
Mysteria Antiques and Oddities is hosting its first taxidermy class with instructor Katie Innamorato; taxidermist in residence of the Morbid Anatomy Museum, Brooklyn NY.

This class will introduce students to the process and techniques behind basic small mammal taxidermy. Guinea pigs will be used because they are perfect for beginners. They are small, sturdy, and easy to work with. Students will learn how to skin, prep, preserve, mount, and position the animal.  Basic armatures will be used and students will learn how to carve head forms. We will discuss how to properly mold items for taxidermy use at home. Students encouraged to bring in any props they may want to dress the animal up in. Everything is provided; specimens, materials, and tools for the class. Each student will leave with his or her own finished mount.

Little sculpted antlers will be available in case anyone wants to make little antlered piggys! (Rats may be available to substitute for guinea pigs as well. Please email if a rat is preferred)

Minors are allowed in class as long as they are supervised by a parent, or if older than 16 come with signed parental consent.

Katie Innamorato, artist and Rogue Taxidermist, is a member of the M.A.R.T. or Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists. She is professionally and self taught in taxidermy; winning awards and ribbons every year at the GSTA. As with all M.A.R.T. members she adheres to strict ethical guidelines when acquiring specimens. She uses roadkill, frozen feeders, scrap skins from other taxidermists and the garment industry, and donated skins to create her artworks; almost every part of the animal is utilized.

Her work has been featured recently on the new Science Channel show, "Odd Folks Home," on the hit Science and Discovery Channel TV show, "Oddities," and exhibited at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.
