Freda James


SAOS Open Studios 2020 I learned my craft at my grandmother's knee and have had a passionate love of textiles ever since.

My first loves are paper and yarn of any sort, and I love to use found ephemera to individualise my artwork. I work with old books as well as antique habberdashery.

Embroidery is something I have taken up in more recent years, and I love fine needlework.... the delicacy of stitching.

My work includes:

Embroidered cushions
Framed embroidered stories
Book sculptures using old books
Domed paper sculpture stories
Silk paper embroidery framed

Artwork for sale.

Parking available. Two steps up to entrance.

Visitors welcome by appointment
