EACH MONTH Charles runs three or four Zoom sessions at which you can book a short sitting to have your own silhouette cut. His Virtual Studio Days run at different times of day to suit clients in different time zones. After the event the silhouettes are delivered by post or airmail worldwide.

During Lockdown in 2020 Charles was quick to take his work online, he found he really enjoyed the flexibility and freedom of cutting silhouettes over Zoom. Anybody, wherever they are in the world, can now book a short, inexpensive sitting to have their silhouettes cut out.
Cutting a silhouette over Zoom is not without challenges, but with preparation it can work really well. I love the way it takes me and my scissors into people’s homes all over the world”
You can use video conferencing to bring a silhouettist into any kind of hybrid event. There are two main ways to do this:
- Charles can appear from his studio via video link to cut silhouettes of people at an in-person event anywhere in the world
- Charles can attend your event in person and cut silhouettes of virtual delegates using your online platform
Cutting silhouettes over Zoom
Each silhouette takes three minutes, so in a 20-minute sitting Charles can cut a family of 4 or 5 quite easily

Virtual Studio Development
The virtual studio began as a way to pivot the business online during the first lockdown. Charles quickly became fascinated by Zoom and began cutting silhouettes of people all over the world, first at online parties and later in his own virtual space.
Charles calls this way of working “virtual street art”.
This series of articles show the development of the virtual studio and explore the possibilities of online working.
