Message from Becky Dick (Taxtiles) regarding the Coronavirus

To all my customer/clients,

Amid the developing coronavirus situation, I wanted to take this opportunity to reassure you of the actions I am taking. Your safety and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to me at Taxtiles.
I am closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and doing everything I can to make sure that my studio space and specimens are sanitised and safe for your home.

Thankfully, I have not been directly affected by COVID-19 and I have taken preventative measures to ensure this remains the case. My studio/workshop is not open to the public and only I go into my studio/workshop.

Additionally, I would also like to reassure you that my services as a taxidermist and artist will continue to function as normal. I am following government guidelines and have introduced a variety of measures such as extra sanitation procedures in my studio space and sanitising the packaging I use when sending pieces of work.


For customers who collect their work in person. I will be offering a delivery service to Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Gloucester, Stroud, Cirencester and the South Cotswolds. For customers who travel further or who are 30 miles or more, I can meet at a half-way point to deliver your piece. For customers who are even further, I always send by insured courier special delivery as usual.

If you have any concerns, Please either phone 07712706750 or email me at taxtiles.taxidermy@gmail.com  

For future customers or ongoing orders and future consultations. I will be conducting them by email, messenger, phone call or video chat. Consultations in person in my studio/workshop I'm afraid are not feasible as we must reduce the chance of COVID-19.

If you need to drop off a specimen to me, I will be offering a collection service to Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Gloucester, Stroud, Cirencester and the South Cotswolds. For customers who travel further or who are 30 miles or more, I can meet at a half-way point to collect your specimen. For even further customers, the usual courier method of Royal Mail special delivery by 1pm or Parcelforce 24 applies here. I also encourage BACS payments or PayPal when paying for your order.

How you can help
It is crucial, now more than ever, that we all follow the World Health Organisation’s advice on Coronavirus and do everything we can to help stop the spread of the virus.

Stay safe and healthy,

Kind Regards,

Becky Dick

Owner of Taxtiles
