Time Out says
After trading in Manchester for almost 130 years, Fred Aldous has crossed the Pennines at last to help people make anything in Leeds.
Fred Aldous has built a strong reputation over the years for selling excellent quality art and craft materials, supporting and working collaboratively with the local creative community and providing creative opportunities for artists, illustrators and designers.
Fred Aldous’ story dates back to 1886 so it was important for the family, who still own it, to find a home in a part of Leeds that is steeped in history, and the location in Kirkgate offers just that.
The staff are all artists and makers who are passionate about helping people to make things. Spread across two floors, Fred Aldous Leeds is enough to inspire you if you're a dab hand or just starting out.
