A new felted installation by artist Lucy Sparrow (top) – you’ll recall her magnificent grocery store, Sparrow Mart).

‘The Bourdon Street Chemist’ is a fully-stocked, woollen pharmacy that will open to the public from mid January 2021 at London’s Lyndsey Ingram. 

If your condition is more urgent, you can purchase many of the artist’s plush creations at her online store.

Can you spot the artist’s (deliberate/accidental) mistake?


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.

A rather wonderful exhibition at an abandoned corner shop in Bethnal Green, East London by British artist and knitting-nut Lucy Sparrow.

The Corner Shop (initially funded by a Kickstarter campaign)  is stocked with a display of 4,000 hand-sewn felt products that took seven months to assemble. Open through August, everything is available to purchase online.
