Have a go at the colourful canal folk art that was used to decorate working narrowboats in the 19th century.
Roses & Castles covered virtually everything in or on the narrowboat – including the vessel itself. The drinking can, the horse’s harness, doors, fitted furniture, lamps, anything and everything was decorated with bright and cheerful chocolate-box designs.
Come and see how it is done and have a go yourself.
This activity is free with your annual pass which gives you free admission to the museum.
