Is silhouette cutting safe?

IF YOU’RE ON my newsletter list I have a small favour to ask.

I’m currently planning a newsletter on “the socially-distant silhouettist”. It’s an important subject; many artists and entertainers are thinking how to provide their services in both a safe and entertaining manner.

For me, this is crucial in rebuilding a battered career!

Silhouette Badges: a new take on an old art?

IF YOU CAN MANAGE to get an hour or two away from the office next week I recommend you make your way down to Old Billingsgate market to see our silhouette badges. The Square Meal ‘Venues and Events’ show is once again taking place. The silhouette-artist stand  is on the bridge, stand no M7. You may come away with your own silhouette in a badge.
