Last weekend (1st/2nd Oct 2016) it was the 1st birthday celebrations for Fred Aldous, Leeds. We couldn't believe it's been a whole year since they opened in the city... doesn't time fly? It's been our go-to arts and crafts shop ever since the store made its appearance here. 

It was a joy to be invited to help with the celebrations and draw 3-minute portraits which have now been displayed in-store. It was lovely to meet so many people in one day whilst drawing them. Everyone we chatted to stated what a fantastic place Fred Aldous is and just what Leeds needs. Here is a round-up of just some of the pictures from the day:
