Artist Transforms an Abandoned Shop into a Grocery Store Filled with Goods Hand-Made from Felt
London-based fabric artist Lucy Sparrow transformed an abandoned Cornershop in Bethnal Green, east London, into a unique pop-up grocery store filled with hand made felt products. Each item- from the bean cans, to the snacks, drinks, frozen dinners, chewing gum and newspapers are made entirely out of felt: each meticulously hand sewn, stuffed and priced to sell. Sparrow painstakingly stitched together an incredible 3,944 items over a seven month period. Speaking about the project she said, "I'm very obsessive and I want that to come across in the work and get people thinking, who would be crazy enough to do this?". The shop will be open throughout the month of August - with everything available to buy, with prices varying from £3 for a felt cigarette lighter to £840 for the store's cash register.
