I have always been curious about taxidermy but never made myself learn any proper methods. If there is anyone who has the desire to learn and fell like taxidermy is something they will enjoy then Caleb's School is the place to go for that.
It's amazing how much knowledge and impressive techniques you learn in such a short period of time. I especially noticed how much passion Caleb has for the art of taxidermy and it rubs off into your own work. The school as a whole gives you a very at home feeling which makes it very comfortable and easy to learn. The experience was great and I know taxidermy will now be enjoyable for me.
I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend Caleb's school. Being able to attend class in a working studio provided an invaluable view into the everyday tasks needed to run a professional business.
The small class sizes meant everyone got the one-on-one time they needed while still have a great workspace.
Caleb's teaching style allows great flexibility with room for creativity and personal style. I would heartily recommend the school to anyone wanting to start their career in a fun, relaxed and highly professional way.
The decision to become a taxidermist has been a long journey for me. There are a lot of schools out there and I spent 2 years checking them out and trying to find one that best offered what I was looking for.
I met Caleb May and his family at a sports show and saw a guy that had strong family values and a lot of knowledge and experience. His ability to communicate with students and explain why certain methods are necessary is crucial to understanding this great form of art. While attending this class a student will learn that you are only limited by your imagination and not the teachings of the instructor. This is what I feel separates this school form the rest. Caleb has years of experience and isn't afraid to share it with his students. He also has the ability to listen to the ideas of his students and encourage you to be creative.
It has been a great experience attending this school and I feel it has a lot to offer anyone that wants to be a taxidermist either for a living or as a hobby.
Good luck! - Ron Hawkins (taxidermist)
