The Felt Cornershop By Lucy Sparrow Sells Hand-Stitched Items

Words

Artist Lucy Sparrow turned an old Cornershop in London into a temporary installation by replacing each and every item in the store with a felt replica. From the cash register to confectionary products, essential care items and magazines, Sparrow has made more than 4,000 items for her project over a span of seven months. The shop is open for business for the month of August, all items are available for purchase in the store and online.

The project was financed with a successful Kickstarter campaign where she raised over £10,500. Who would like to view more textile artworks should visit our Top 10 here.
