Create and Craft partnership with Aardman



Create and Craft are thrilled to announce their latest craft licensing partnership coming this Autumn as they bring the world of Aardman to life through several collections of craft products themed around the iconic Aardman characters.


The first of these craft collections will kick off 26th November 2018 and will be based around Wallace & Gromit – A Grand Day Out. Products from the range will include; Metal dies, character paper pads, stamp sets, screen printing screens and more. All of the dies from the range have been made using the most detailed die technology. The dies incorporate essential detail, to enable crafters to get the truest likeness to each character possible through precision cutting. Using these alongside the coordinating paper pads and stamp sets enables both beginners and experienced crafters to create the same professional results. This collection will also include screens which work with the hugely popular Screen Sensation product range so crafters can create their very own printed designs from T-shirts to home décor. Following on from Wallace & Gromit – A Grand Day Out, Create and Craft will be launching a Shaun the Sheep collection as well as a whole host of other Aardman character launches set to come to the channel in the months to follow.


Stephanie Weightman, Product Creative Director at Create and Craft said “Here at Create and Craft we are thrilled about this new partnership which enables us to bring Aardman to the world of craft. These iconic characters, from Wallace & Gromit to Shaun the Sheep, and more, are much-loved by both young and old and the designs will be ideal for creating projects for all kinds of occasions.”


Aardman’s Brand Manager Beth Smith said of the partnership:  “We’re very excited to be working with Create and Craft. At Aardman we are driven by creativity, and it’s been great to draw on our characters inherently artistic and tactile worlds with their new line of craft products.”


Ian Downes of Start Licensing who facilitated the partnership added: “We are delighted to bring two such creative companies together. It is always good to see licensees using well established IP in fresh and innovative ways.”
