The Cunning Craftsman Artist Workshop At Fjallraven Manchester

Artist sketching designs in a Fjällräven store with a custom-painted Kånken backpack and painting supplies on the table

On Friday 10th September we were honoured to have artist The Cunning Craftsman, visit our store to paint and customise two Kanken backpacks. The inspiration behind the customisation was based around the rural and urban parts of Manchester as well as Fjallraven's core values; nature and sustainability.  

Artist hand-painting a custom design on a Fjällräven Kånken backpack, with a focus on the creative customisation process.

The Craftsman started the process by sketching out a rough design on each bag before he displayed his artistic skills with paint.

Here you can see the finished pieces where The Cunning Craftsman has showcased a distinctive artistic style. It is clear that he has taken inspiration from humanities impact on nature.

It was great to have The Cunning Craftsman visit our store in Manchester and to see so many people stop by to watch these art pieces come to life.
