With less than two weeks to go until the opening of Street Fans, we wanted to tell you all about our upcoming partner events programme.

Street Fans at the Heritage Gallery, University of Greenwich Wednesday 20 + Thursday 21 September

Street Fans at Greenwich Market Saturday 23rd + Sunday 24th September

The Fan Museum is joining forces with Greenwich Market, London’s only market set within a World Heritage site, to stage a two-day Street Fans extravaganza. Open to all ages, this dynamic event offers a chance to try fan-making and watch internationally renowned street artists Skeleton Cardboard, Nathen Bowen and Codex Urbanus paint live amongst the hustle and bustle of the vibrant market scene.

Free fan making classes with our expert tutors will be running at intervals throughout the day. To book your place and for further details please click here.

Jennifer Hall Thompson, Head PR, Greenwich Market said: Greenwich Market is pleased to support this innovative project with a hands-on street art collaboration. As London’s leading designer maker arts and crafts market, we are supportive of events such as this which will both educate and inspire visitors to both the Market and Greenwich

Join Master Fan Maker Sylvain Le Guen and Curator Jacob Moss in conversation on fan making; past, present and future. With fan making only recently added to the Radcliffe Red List of Endangered Crafts, categorised as ‘at serious risk of no longer being practiced in the UK’ Street Fans Curator, Jacob Moss and project fan maker Sylvain Le Guen will discuss the rise, decline and future prospects of the craft. Book your free place here.

Sonia Furley, Head of Student Recruitment and Marketing, LSC said: ‘Lewisham Southwark College are excited to be part of Street Fans. This exciting project will not only open our students’ eyes to the world of fan-making, but also how skilled any style of art is – including modern styles such as street art. For our workshop sessions, we’re inviting local schools to come and create their own street fans whilst watching the professionals at work, and getting tips for their creations. Our Q&A masterclass will be open to anyone with an interest in the artistic and creative sectors – including university students and local businesses. As a large local college in south and east London, we hope to inspire young minds into thinking that they can achieve their creative dreams.’
