What does a Silhouette Artist Actually Do?

Since Silhouette Artists are so unique in their performance type, you might be wondering what they actually do!  Using card which is usually black in colour, a Silhouette Artist will create portraits of people by cutting them out of the card.  This type of artistic entertainment became popular in the mid-18th century and is still available to hire now.   These portraits can look quite realistic capturing the shape of a persons’ face with features such as their noses and hair!

How long will a Silhouette Artist perform for?

Each Silhouette Artist will have their own set performance times, so it is always best to check with your chosen performer before booking to make sure that they can accommodate for your event, especially if you are hosting a longer event.  Most Silhouette Artists can happily accommodate for one or two hours of performance as they work around the room.
