Dive into the whacky world of British felt-artist, Lucy Sparrow in Felt World – a profile of the artist who transformed her love of sewing into an ambitious vision to create the whole world in felt.
The book depicts Sparrow’s 2014 project, The Cornershop, which catapulted her to fame and saw her transform an abandoned shop in East London into a grocery store, stocked entirely with items hand-stitched from felt.
The book features hundreds of everyday objects and landmarks reimagined into softer, more playful versions. Her masterpieces include everything from Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Giza to tubes of toothpaste and sex toys.

About the artist
Contemporary British artist Lucy Sparrow works at the intersection of fine art and craft, incorporating textiles into her sculptural installations.
Known for creating familiar household objects from wool and felt, Sparrow has held exhibitions in site specific locations since her acclaimed 2014 installation ‘The Cornershop’, which saw the takeover of a derelict newsagents in East London, filled with her fabric-sculptures. Subsequent shows include 2015’s ‘Madame Roxy’s Erotic Emporium’, housed in a Soho sex shop, and 2019’s ‘Sixth Avenue Delicatessen’ in New York.
Sparrow has been involved in notable group shows across the UK and was a contributor to the V&A’s 2013 travelling street art collection along with Banksy, Blek le Rat, and Pure Evil. Her first solo show at Hoxton Gallery, entitled ‘Imitation’, recreated iconic artworks form felt, including Damien Hirst’s shark in formaldehyde.
