Creative Manchester for Fred Aldous LTD

Over the past few week Elle Brotherhood and I have been flaneus-ing about the twin cities to interview and photograph lots of different creative practitioners for the Fred Aldous Blog. Fred Aldous is an arts and crafts supplies shop where I work as a sales/everything assistant and Elle works as a studio technician and photographer. We wanted to uncover and explore the links between the shop, and what is happening creatively around Manchester and Salford, and we've been really impressed and inspired by what we've found. I've enjoyed the project especially because it's an excuse to ask questions of people I might've met in in passing that would be rude in any other context! Below are links to all the posts so far:
