About Us

Narrowboat Da Vinci &
Narrowboat Lowry

DV Design Studios

We live and work on our narrowboats on the canals of the UK. We are currently moored up in Wolverhampton working on our community project with Canal and River Trust and the City Council - Urban Moorings CIC.

When we are not doing this, we are busy making stuff aboard narrowboat butty Lowry or in 'The Big Purple Shed'. We hope you enjoy our shop, and please feel free to have a look around.


Meet Ali

Ali worked for a long long time jetting around the globe for meetings as an Automotive Design Engineer. After becoming bored of the glamour and missing just working on CAD she set up DV Design Studios. Now her jetsetting takes place at 4mph on the canal.


Meet Lou

As your typical artist, Lou has worked in lots of jobs, before finally setting up their own company making canvases. Needing a creative outlet they also work with Ali at DV Design. Tempremental (as most artists are) they likes Skulls and Taxidermy. They also have a penchant for glitter.


Meet Mr Squash (Security)

Mr Squash is Orange. He likes kisses and cuddles and being picked up. He actually isn't a very good head of security. He hides behind his 'oomins for protection. He loathes water but he loves sticks. He is accomplished in travelling by train and eliciting affection from other travellers.


Meet Harvey (Clown)

 Harvey is very special. He was rescued from 'deaths door' by his Auntie Lin at Animal House Rescue and at one point was very famous. He likes to steal food that is not his, and he finds everything hilarious. His full name is; Oh Harvey you Plank
