What you'll do

You'll be welcomed on board and shown some examples of the craft/art activity you've chosen.
Then it's your turn.
I'll take you step by step at your own pace through the creative process of your chosen activity.
Classes are kept to a maximum of 3 people in the same bubble, in order to allow for plenty of individual support. This enables everyone to create something unique and individual to them.
I teach in a way that enables you quickly grasp all the basics so that you are confident to continue on your own after the class.
Because of the level off individual support available all classes are suitable for all levels from absolute beginners to very experienced.
Other things to note
The boat is a short (less than 5 minute) walk from the car park and less than 10 minutes from the bus stop. There is a step up and over and then a step down to board the boat so unfortunately it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Meet your host, Lisa

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I've been teaching a wide variety of arts and crafts for over 20 years.
Since 2017 I've been doing this full time, often from the unique location of the craft studio onboard my narrowboat in Coventry.
Naturally I get a lot of interest from people wanting to learn canal folk art 'roses & castles' as it's quite unique to learn canal art while actually on a narrowboat.
However I also offer to teach you many other arts and crafts, needle felting is currently the most frequently requested.
My personal favourite craft is Powertex, which is a way of turning scrap, fabric, recycling etc. into unique works of art and weatherproof sculptures.
