A new installation by British artist Lucy Sparrow (you may recall her 2014 Kickstarter funded London Corner Shop and 2017 Manhattan bodega).

Occupying 260 square meters of the Standard Highline Hotel in LA, Sparrow Mart is a whimsical homage in felt to US convenience goods: from ramen noodles and Reese’s Puffs to strawberry jelly and personal hygiene products.

31,000 hand-made felt items that took her a full year to create.

      Probably because she’s a professional artist and it’s really good and people seem to like it and she gets great press and probably earns a few quid off it. Like anyone who does things for a job like.

        Also, I can add (from personal experience) that felting is immensely satisfying. There’s something wonderfully soothing about it.

          fair play, millie. you’re a truly modern woman. (it’s spelled ‘feltching’ though)
