Our fantastic interview with Fred and Eric!!

Hi! On the weekend we went down to London to interview a company called Fred & Eric. They are a t.v production company who love getting crafty and anything handmade. They use lots of their handmade crafts for their animation. Here are the Questions & the Answers:

Q: Why did you choose the name of your company fred and eric?
A: We saw the word 'frederic' and loved the name and split it up into Fred & Eric. It seemed funny at the time, but really isn't!!

Q: What happens to all the crafts after they have been used
A: They either join the Fred & Eric family on the shelf or given away to someone very special.

Q: What is the best bit about the job?
A: Making soft cuddly toys!!

Q: What is your next project?
Well...... I think it is the green ambassadors project for WWF which will be appearing in schools next year.

Q: What is your favourite thing that you've made?
A: The little cuddles and the southern train Spanish man.

I hope you enjoyed our first interview! They were really friendly and the Fred & Eric family of handmade fun were very, very cuddly and sweet, especially little cuddles and mr special!!! They have had loads of '&'s sent in and they are all unique and fun.

Some of their animation uses their wonderful crafts. There is a link to a video at the end of this post which you can watch and an animation they made for comic relief. We would love to know what you think of the post and the videos so post a comment and tell us what you think!

Have a great summer!

  1. Hi Maisie and Olivia,
    What an interesting interview. Are you tempted to start making animations using your crafts?
    What are you making at the moment?
    Have a wonderful summer holiday too. Enjoy the sunshine.

    1. Hi Emma! At the moment I'm to busy to be thinking about crafts as watching olympics! Go team GB!

  2. Hi Maisie and Olivia, it was a pleasure meeting you - thanks for helping out on our shoot. We really enjoyed reading your interview too, you make a brilliant team.

    You should definitely try and make an animation next and if you have time we'd love an ampersand to add to our collection!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer, Maggie, Jamie & Sarah xxx

    1. Thanks Maggie, Jamie & Sarah! Great to hear from you! A knitted ampersand will definitely be coming your way but at the moment too busy watching the olympics. Go team GB!
