*Give Art a Go* The Bethnal Green Felt Cornershop

  • Aug 12, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Artist Lucy Sparrow has created a cornership art installation in Bethnal Green where everything in the shop is made of felt! From the chewing gum and digestive biscuits to the cash register and the charity collection box on the counter.

And all of the items are for sale, just as they would be in a real corner shop. You just need to wait until the installation closes at the end of August to be able to collect your purchase (otherwise she'd end up with an empty shop).

You can read more about her project on her blog:

Let's meet outside the shop at 18.15 and we can have a look around and then head to a bar for a drink afterwards.

      Hi Nathalie, this is the next event - it's an art installation in Bethnal Green followed by (hopefully) Swedish cakes :) Let me know if you need any more info.

    I've contacted Fika on Brick Lane to see if we can grab a spot there after the felt shop. They do cocktails and coffee and also hopefully some Scandinavian cakes!
