Christine Wood is a very accomplished cabinet maker and furniture restorer. She also creates wooden items for boats and paints them in the traditional way. Her work has been likened to many of the great traditional canal artists.
Christine’s work can be seen throughout this website and some items are available to buy.
Alternatively, you can commission Christine to paint items in your boat colours or any other design.
Commissioned work is also undertaken for cabin graining, door and internal panel decorations.
Christine will once again be at Tradline Rope & Fenders in Braunston Marina, Braunston this Saturday between 9am and 2pm, selling painted items and demonstrating traditional painting techniques.
Christine was at Braunston Marina selling her painted canalware and giving informal demonstrations of traditional canal painting as part of the Braunston Historic Boat Rally and Canal Festival in June 2022.
Christine was commissioned to make and paint a miniature wooden cabin stool for a younger member of the Nurser family, who have a historic connection with narrowboat construction and painting in Braunston.
A variety of handmade and painted canalware is available to purchase.
Commissions for cabin graining as well as door and internal panel decorations are welcomed.
Cans or any other item can be painted in your boat colours or your requested design.
