Hobbycraft Artisan Launches New Nature Inspired Colour-in Canvas Range

By Emily Peagram 01 Apr 2021

Hobbycraft is proud to announce the launch of a new Colour-In Canvas range created by Adele Busby, a store colleague and member of its Artisan programme.

The new range of Colour-In Canvas, which takes inspiration from the nature of the world, features a striking tiger design and an enchanting sea turtle design. The two designs are available online now and in store from April.

Adele is one of 30 talented Hobbycraft colleagues that are part of the Hobbycraft Artisan programme. The programme launched in 2020 and was designed by Hobbycraft to nurture its expert colleagues who embody its love of craft and all things making. This skilled group of colleagues work to make and create, while sharing their skills with Hobbycraft customers.

Adele is a team leader at Hobbycraft’s Peterborough store and specialises in wildlife portraiture and illustration as well as enjoying an array of crafts including drawing, sculpting, painting, and needle felting. Adele is the third Artisan to have launched a product with Hobbycraft and follows in the footsteps of Chesterfield Artisan Bethany Salt who successfully launched a fabric range last year which sold out within the first week of launching, and Brighton Artisan Sam Lane who launched a series of crochet patterns in 2019.

Adele commented: “As far as the design process goes, I am always inspired by the natural world and wanted to create something that could be enjoyed by anyone, something that would bring joy to others and spark creativity even in those who don’t feel like they are creative. I’d like for my canvases to help people discover a passion they didn’t know they had. I love being part of the Artisan programme and I’m grateful to Hobbycraft for this opportunity to share my passion with others. I cannot wait to see my range in store when our stores reopen in April.”

The tiger and sea turtle Colour-In Canvas designs are priced at £6 each. Both are available online now and in stores from the 12th April.
