About Fred Aldous
We are an arts, crafts and gift retailer that has been trading since
1886. Our family run, independent business has now crossed the
Pennines from Manchester to help people make anything in Leeds.
Spread across two floors, Fred Aldous Leeds continues to represent our
values of encouraging creativity and inspiring new ideas. You will
find everything you need to make anything you want from fine art
materials and model making tools to haberdashery and craft supplies.
We are pleased to now stock a range of our own brand products which
includes the Fred Aldous Block Printing Kit, our Sketchpad range with
limited edition covers produced by local artists and our high quality
solid wood and glass picture frames.
At Fred Aldous we work hard to preserve the magic and historic
importance of analogue photography which is why we also stock film,
darkroom chemicals and photographic paper.
Alongside our art and craft products we stock a carefully selected
range of books, stationary, giftware and home accessories from leading
designers and artists such as HAY, The Printed Peanut, Field Notes and
You will find that we can provide the right tool or material for
whatever project you might be working on and this is because we love
people who have that urge to pick up a pencil, brush or needle and
want to create. If you’re one of these people we salute you!
