Chamberlain Carrying Co. is our floating gift shop business, using our butty (unpowered) boat Echoes as the shop and painting studio.  We travel during the summer season, attending festivals and busy places selling our range of hand painted Canalware items, decorative ropework and general Canalia.

Trained by Waterways Craft Guild Journeyman Julie Tonkin, I (Ruth) have developed and evolved my own style of this traditional folk art, also called Roses and Castles.    If we are near you, come and see us and peruse our wide choice of items for sale.  Commissions /orders undertaken, time permitting!
