Book a private sitting for two in my virtual studio

“I’ll cut both your portraits freehand with scissors.
Each session includes two signed silhouettes, delivered anywhere in the world”

How does it work?

Silhouette-cutting takes place online.

You will book a short, private Zoom meeting with the well-known silhouettist Charles Burns. Each studio day is divided into a number of 10-minute sittings, each available at a fraction of the cost of booking Charles for an event.

One sitting is enough to cut silhouettes of two people, either as a pair of classic cameo portraits or as one double silhouette. Two consecutive sessions will make silhouettes for a family of four, and so on.

At the end of the day Charles will mount the silhouettes onto signed cards, backed with a stamped certificate of authenticity, and post them free of charge anywhere in the world.
