Canal folk art has been used for over a hundred years to decorate not only canal boats, but the day-to-day items used on-board, such as coal scuttles, jugs and kitchen utensils. Traditional designs include florals painted in bold and beautiful layers to create their distinctive look.

With the help of this guide, you'll be able to create a handy letter holder using this simple painting technique – designed to turn everyday items into something beautifully decorative. Once you've mastered it, you'll want to use it time and time again.
