Buy Your Pack Now!

The Shuffle is now closed as we are unable to get a canvas to you in time and returned by 31st July. Thank you everyone for all your hard work! It's going to be fab.

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone, anywhere in the world, to be part of an exhibition of portraits. At the same time, you’ll be helping Through Our Hands raise funds for Save The Children, who do so much to help children around the world be safe, healthy and have an opportunity to learn and live their lives to the full. 

Not only will your portrait be part of a wonderful display of creative work, but it will then be shuffled and you’ll receive someone else’s portrait in return - an original artwork to keep!

  • Sign up for a Portrait Shuffle pack on the Through Our Hands website or blog.
  • We’ll send you a Portrait Shuffle pack in the post
  • Create your portrait in any style and any media working on the canvas in the pack.
  • Post your portrait back to us (we’ll send you handy labels in the pack).
  • Be exhibited at Festival of Quilts!
  • After the exhibition, we’ll do ‘The Shuffle’ and will send you a portrait by someone else in the post.
