The Guild of Taxidermists is the only officially recognised organisation actively working with the legislative authorities to secure the future for legitimate taxidermy in the UK.
Since its formation in 1976 the Guild has raised the profile and standard within UK taxidermy . We are now a respected body, regularly consulted and asked to contribute over a range of issues from legislation to media interest. If you are a practicing taxidermist or collector, whether you are or have been a member you will undoubtedly have benefited from the Guilds activities.
Taxidermy continues to be very popular, with many people wanting to try their hand as a hobbyist, or even to earn an income.
If you were thinking about going on an instructional course and want to learn sound techniques that are required to do quality work that will last, then the Guild strongly advises only going to a qualified, accredited or specialist Guild member. Those qualified who are giving such courses are listed below:
Mike Gadd - Boston Spa, West Yorkshire
Carl Church - Pickering North Yorkshire
David Hornbrook - Guisborough, Cleveland TS146EB
01287 630 940
Derek Frampton - Kings Langley, Hertfordshire
Philip Leggett - Bolton Lanc's
George C Jamieson - Kirk Cramon, Edinburgh

The Guild are also hoping to organise official instructional demonstrations on taxidermy and details will be given here when available.
