Description

We arranged this virtual studio day as a tribute to the silhouette artist Elizabeth Baverstock

Silhouette cutting takes place online, so no need to worry about masks or social distancing! All our studio days consist of a series of 10-minute portrait sittings, which take place over Zoom.

After booking your sitting(s) you’ll receive an email ticket containing a Zoom link and further information.

On the day you’ll be asked to log in to the Zoom event shortly before the time you chose from the list above. Charles will cut silhouettes of you and your family and pop them in the post afterwards.

What was Elizabeth Baverstock?

Elizabeth Baverstock was a Belgian artist who settled in England after World War II. She began making her decorative silhouettes after being inspired by antique eighteenth-century profiles.

Elizabeth cut her silhouettes and decorated them then with a wide range of materials, including lace and coloured paper, before adding details in gold paint and black ink. 

Studio Day Tributes

We named this Studio Day as a tribute to Elizabeth Baverstock. As a self-taught artist Charles owes a huge debt to the work of past silhouettists, so naming studio days like this is a good way to pay tribute to them.

Charles normally cuts silhouette in his own style (there are many examples all over this website). However, if you’d like your portraits cut in the manner of any tributed artist please do ask. Such challenges are always welcome!
