Why Choose Us?
Taxtiles is a merge of 2 words: textile & taxidermy. Textile Sculpture/Embroidery/Taxidermy/Skulls and Entomology
Taxtiles established in 2014, the studio is based in the South Cotswolds in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Also an associate member of the Stroud Valley Artspace, Guild of Taxidermists and Cotswold Craftsmen.
The techniques used in the textile taxidermy are from traditional taxidermy translated into fabric, using sustainable yarns, threads and fabric.
All sculptures are pose able and can interact with each other. Even the textile trophy heads are pose able with the ears. Every sculpture is bespoke and individual. They can vary in colour and personality which gives them character.
None of the textile taxidermy has any part of an animal or bird inside it. The textile taxidermy is also referred to as "vegan taxidermy".
As well as textile sculpture, Becky has been doing traditional taxidermy since 2014, trained by professional taxidermist David Keningale. Specialising in mammals and birds. Additionally Becky has also had training from specialist bird taxidermist Carl Church.
All taxidermy specimens and fur/feathers are ethically sourced and have been either road-kill, euthanised wild-life from the vets and RSPCA which couldn't be saved due to injuries and illness. No animals or bird was killed when making the pieces. They were already dead when acquired. Becky never kills any of her specimens for her taxidermy.
Becky also does free-hand embroidery and illustrates motifs inspired by British wild-life. They are created into canvassed wall-pieces or cushions.
