FCI supports Modern Fan Design

One of the purposes of the FCI is to encourage interest in and knowledge of the fan. Though to many of us this would mean the history of fans, and of collecting and researching old fans, the FCI is also keen to sponsor interest in young people which may include modern design of fans. The fan featured here is our 2017 First Prize winning entry, Weapon Fan, and the moving pictures at the top of this page show all the 2017 competition entries.

The Fan Museum, Greenwich

Fan Circle founder member Hélène Alexander was able to realise the dream of a lifetime when, in 1991, the Fan Museum in Greenwich opened its doors. Opened after several years’ refurbishment of two partly derelict Georgian buildings near the centre of Greenwich, the Fan Museum houses a superb collection of fans and runs three special exhibitions annually, showcasing different aspects of the fan. A must for any London visitor, the Fan Museum and the FCI have always had a special relationship and the FCI organises visits there on a regular basis, as well as frequently holding its Christmas party in the Orangery.
