THIS IS A QUESTION I hear quite a bit. The reply is “not fairly…”. Silhouette slicing does occupy a tiny area of interest on the planet of artwork, however I’m not fairly the one one.
Figuring out different silhouette artists is commonly helpful. Through the years I’ve cultivated a small community of such artists, each within the UK and abroad.
A community of silhouettists
For bigger occasions I usually discover that purchasers wish to e-book a couple of silhouettist. It is a good thought for occasions with 200 visitors or extra, because it ensures all people will see a minimum of one in all us in motion.
Principal among the many community is my good friend and colleague Michael.
Michael and I started working collectively because the Roving Artist in 2001. Our purpose was to introduce one of the best of silhouette slicing to the company and personal occasions market.
Since then now we have launched into a deep and enduring inventive collaboration. I feel each of us have discovered quite a bit from one another, each about slicing silhouettes and current then at occasions.
Michael is all the time my number-one alternative when two silhouettists are wanted, or once I’m not obtainable.
A Snippet of Silhouettists?
When two or extra silhouettists work collectively, what’s the right collective noun?
Listed here are my favorite UK based mostly artists, all of whom I’ve labored with on many events over a few years. I’m pleased to suggest any of them once I’m not free, or to work with them as a part of a “snippet” at bigger occasions.
When is one silhouettist not sufficient?
When reserving leisure for a sit-down dinner my traditional recommendation is to e-book one silhouettist for 200 visitors.
This doesn’t imply that one silhouettist can bodily minimize 200 silhouettes in a night! It does imply that I would anticipate to go to every of twenty or so tables in the course of the even gin, slicing a few silhouettes at every to entertain your visitors.
When you have 25 or 30 tables I’ll endeavour to do the identical. Nonetheless, when numbers method 40 tables it is best to think about reserving a second artist.
For very giant occasions (500+) I can prepare a snippet of three or 4 silhouettists to attend. Silhouette slicing is a really speedy artwork and ideally suited to this type of occasion.
