IRREGULAR THINGS FREDDIE LOVES
WELCOME TO OUR MINI SERIES 'IRREGULAR INTRODUCTIONS' IN WHICH CREATIVE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE 'IRREGULAR' THINGS THEY LOVE. This week's special guest is the artist Freddie Robins.
Freddie lives and works in Essex and London. Currently Senior Tutor and Reader in Textiles at the Royal College of Art she works to commission and exhibits nationally and internationally. Freddie’s practice crosses definable categories of art, craft and design. She combines these elements elegantly, and with playful wit subverts meaning and making, fusing a melting-pot of approaches to ‘craft’.
