2017-2018 Workshop Schedule & Prices

From Sept through March every year Mark and Deb teach small “boutique” canvas training workshops for just four students per class. No other canvas school offers the individual attention, advanced fabrication techniques and years of experience in the trade that we do.

The marine canvas trade is inexpensive in terms of investment and very rewarding. Many of our students set up shops in their basement, garage or barn to keep overhead down, retail space is not a requirement.

We limit our class size to four students, so every student gets our individual attention with two teachers in every workshop. You will learn with highly qualified teachers with 34 years of experience. This level of experience is hard to come by in our trade. We frequently update this page, so be sure to check back often for new workshop dates and status updates. We care about all our students and want them to succeed in the trade by producing quality fabrications. Please take the time to contact any of our past students on our Class Testimonial Page. We hope you choose us for your training.
