Have portrait - will shuffle

Look what I've got.

This is the pack for the Portrait Shuffle (without the fabric, that’s from my stash).

The Portrait Shuffle is a great idea from the “Through our Hands” textile art group. You can sign up for this pack (once again – no fabric included), create a portrait of any kind (person, animal, flower, …) in any way (draw, paint, collage, patchwork, photograph, …) on the canvas and return it to the organizers.

All the portraits will be exhibited at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England in August. After this the portraits will be shuffled and you will get a portrait back. Not your own but somebody elses. So you get back an original work of art by an artist from somewhere in the world. Exciting, isn’t it?

The pack costs 20 British Pounds and all the funds raised will go to “Save The Children”, an organization dedicated to helping children all over the world. To learn more about them click here.

Join in! The more portraits the better the shuffle! And you will
  • be exhibited at the Festival of Quilt (the largest European quiltshow),
  • help children,
  • have fun,
  • receive an original work of art.

Hurry up – the deadline for the canvas being in England is July 31st, 2017.
