About Kerri Williams, Canal Artist

Canal artist and historian.

Canal art, sign writing, Canal history, historic canal boats, working boats.

I was lucky enough to be apprenticed to the wonderful Canal Artist, Julie Tonkin. She gave, and still gives, her time and knowledge freely. I shall be forever grateful. I'm proud to have learnt my skills in the traditional way, through hard work without modern short cuts.

As well as painting in my busy workshop, I can often be found working with historic canal boats, or teaching workshops in museums and schools.

Alongside my painted ware and courses, I welcome boat commissions big and small.

Canal art workshops

Join me for beginners classes, learning how to paint in the traditional ‘Roses and Castles’ canal art style. You’ll be using the same enamel paints used to decorate the boats themselves.

In the workshops we’ll cover a wee bit of history as well as;

– development of the art,

– what kit you need (and how to treat it right!)

– canal flowers

– castles

I’ll guide you through each step, provide all materials and share hints and tips along the way.
