A great gift idea for someone who loves new experiences! With this voucher artist Alison Russell will cut the silhouette of the recipient's profile free hand using just scissors and a keen eye to capture a remarkable likeness via Zoom! This takes just a few minutes to do in the classic Victorian style and Alison will talk to her subject as she cuts about the history of the art and how she learned the skill from her grandmother when she was little.
The resulting portrait will be shown live over the screen, mounted on A5 sized card, popped in an envelope (unframed) and where possible delivered by hand to their doorstep the same day (this applies locally - within a 2 mile radius of N22). Alternatively the silhouette can be posted directly to the recipient, P&P included.
A fun and completely socially distanced experience!
Voucher valid for one year from purchase date.
