Visit The Bethnal Green Felt Cornershop

Frozen chips, Hobnobs, KY Jelly…all the produce at this new Bethnal Green cornershop is handmade from felt. Geoff Marshall pays a visit and speaks to Lucy Sparrow, whose handiwork this is.

The Cornershop is at 19 Wellington Row, Bethnal Green E2 7BB until 31 August, 10am-7pm. It’s free to visit, and you can even reserve items for purchase at the end of the exhibition. Listen to our extended interview with Lucy on Londonist Out Loud.
