Artist Installation Felt Corner Shop

Driving home from work this evening, I heard about an amazing artist’s installation that is currently on view until the end of August, in Bethnal Green London.

A corner shop has been created by artist Lucy Sparrow, using only felt to make the products. The shop which sells everything you would expect from a corner shop such as newspapers, baked beans, packets of crisps and biscuits, took 7 months for Lucy and her assistant to create and at the end of the month everything will be available to buy either from the shop or from this website.

It’s an incredible piece of work that Lucy wanted to create to remind people of their community and the importance of their local shop, something which in many parts of the country is,sadly, becoming something of the past.

    I know it is amazing, it took 2 people, 7 months, working 14 hour days, that's dedication 🙂
