Charles Burns: online silhouettist
All silhouette-cutting takes place online.
During the last twenty years Charles has cut portraits of the Queen (three times) Presidents Clinton and Mandela, and a whole host of celebrities.
You can now book a short, private sitting to have your own silhouettes cut over Zoom. Charles sets aside a small number of days each month for online sittings. These can be reserved at a fraction of the cost for booking Charles at an in-person event.
Each sitting costs £60 and is long enough to cut silhouettes of up to two people as a pair of classic cameo portraits, or one person as a full-length silhouette. For families and groups, just book extra sittings. Booking two or more sittings costs just £48 each automatic discounts apply at checkout).
At the end of the day Charles will mount all the silhouettes onto card and sign each one. The cards come backed with a stamped certificate of authenticity. We will then post your silhouettes free of charge anywhere in the world.
