We would love as many people as possible to join in with the Portrait Shuffle. The Ts & Cs are always the boring bit, but please read the Terms & Conditions below before signing up. Purchasing a pack and sending us your canvas confirms that you are agreeing to and accepting them.
All profits from this project will be donated to Save The Children. Registered charity number 213890. A minimum donation of £5 from every Portrait Shuffle pack will be donated.
Portrait Shuffle canvasses will be exhibited at The Festival of Quilts, NEC, Birmingham, UK. 10th-13th August 2017. They will be displayed as part of 'Portrait' by Through Our Hands. This event will be referred to as 'the exhibition'.
After the exhibition, your completed canvas will be sent to another participant. In turn, you will receive someone else's. This will be referred to as 'the shuffle'.
To be included in the exhibition and the shuffle your canvas will need to be with us by 31st July 2017. We recommend that for peace of mind, you return your canvas to us with a tracked and signed for service.
As this is a charitable project, we cannot afford to pay any import duty on your parcel. Please mark your parcel with a very low (or no) value. It can be marked as a 'gift' as of course you are donating it to the project. If you are unsure of what to do, please email us before you send for more specific advice.
Returning your completed canvas to us confirms your wish to be included in the Exhibition and the shuffle.
