Silhouette cutting at Victorian Events

"Silhouette Artist for a Victorian Events."
Victorian themed events are all the rage at the moment, and silhouette cutting is an art form that people associate with this era which is making a comeback.

I've been asked to entertain with silhouette art at a number of high-profile events recently (including a royal engagement) that all had a Victorian theme, and I must say Silhouette cutting is the perfect entertainment for such events.

I guess the Victorian theme is in vogue thanks to the likes of Heston going back to the Victorian age to create amazing feasts, such as this one

Other TV programs are also taking a look into the Victorian life and the Victorians certainly seemed to have had fascinating interests, which until now have almost all but been forgotten. Silhouette Art seems to very much fall into that category.  

I have had the good fortune to work with some very talented people who are trying to keep the Victorian era alive.  One such Victorian group is the Victorian Society who do a great job of celebrating our history.

Silhouette Sarah holds the same philosophy, that you can create something marvellous and unique by travelling back in time. 

Sarah is reinventing the forgotten art form such as silhouettes, by going to events and demonstrating this art form in a contemporary style with modern twists on traditional outfits and attractive displays.

This is why Sarah has got together some of the best Victorian themed entertainment to enhance your event at one of the many Victorian venues around Britain.

Silhouette Art at an Edwardian Event

Cutting Silhouettes for the National Trust.  On the 3rd of May (Bank holiday Monday), I will be entertaining with the rare art of silhouette cutting at Polesden Lacey in Dorking.

"Lavish house parties and discrete liaisons"

 Once home to legendary Edwardian millionaires Lady Margaret Greville, Polesden Lacey was notorious for providing the backdrop for lavish house parties and discrete liaisons. These days this grand house is owned by the National Trust, who hosts slightly less wild but just as fun events.

I've already worked at this venue for their annual Valentines event which was a great success, and I'm very much looking forward to returning.

Silhouette Cutting fits in Perfectly with an Edwardian Theme

The National Trust seem to really love my silhouettes and think a silhouette artist is very in-keeping with the Edwardian style of the property. Well I can certainly see the likes of Elizabeth cutting silhouettes of her secret love Darcy.  (Sorry but I just love Pride & Prejudice).

It will be a great day for a picnic and there will be many Edwardian themed events in the house and grounds. To find out more visit:

Silhouette of an Entertainer - A (Wayne) Sleep on the Train

After cutting Silhouettes at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Association, where I meet Andy Murray (another story), I was on the train home, when I looked across at the gentleman in the seat opposite me. He look's familiar, I thought to myself, then I realised it was famous Ballet Dancer, Actor and Musical director, Wayne Sleep.

So I had to introduce myself and once I explained that I was a Silhouette Artist, he asked if I could cut his silhouette. So as a Ballet fan I jumped, or should I say 'grand jeté', at the chance.

Wayne Sleep with his Silhouette

He was an absolutely lovely man and a great subject. I think I captured his likeness very well, what do you think?:

It just goes to show, it's best to travel by train. I'd of never got a Sleep if I'd driven (sorry!).
