The Stroud Silhouette Company is a collaboration with papercut artist Yasemin Wigglesworth. We create large silhouette screens which are then used to take children silhouette portraits. Each screen design has a unique design which is cut by hand using a surgeons scalpel. The three designs we have produced so far are a circus theme, a border based on 'The Secret Garden' story and a woodland design. The most recent silhouette screen marks the 250th anniversary of the circus.
We have been involved with places such as at 'The Museum in the Park' and 'Artfea' in Stroud and the Hay on Wye literary festival. We welcome opportunities to take part in events in art galleries and museums as well as festivals and special events.
We have just created our first stop animation 'Wonder' with music composed by Mark Ruffin.
