Faces of London

We’ve teamed up with our friends at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea to bring you a special edition of Craft Club! πŸ§‘β€πŸŽ¨ Our inspiration was the contemporary photographer JR, whose exhibition is on view at the Gallery until October 3. πŸ“Έ

JR recently completed artworks for London itself, with a powerful installation on Tower Bridge. It commemorated the contribution of key workers throughout the pandemic. πŸ§‘β€βš•οΈ

Why not experiment with creating your own virtual installations across London – within this pack you’ll have the chance to badge some familiar places around the city. You’ll also encounter some funny faces πŸ€ͺ and have a chance to capture your own using a camera. πŸ“Έ Have fun with it!

Funny faces

Look at these funny faces photographed by JR. Which is your favourite? Why? πŸ€” Can you make an even funnier funny face? 😝

Connecting people and places

JR connects people with the places in which they live. πŸ™ Can you draw some of your own portraits onto these images of spaces around London? πŸ– It could be some googly eyes, πŸ‘€ a big smile, 😁 or a portrait of someone you really admire. πŸ–Ό
