Wood-and-Canvas Canoe Restoration
May 26th and 27th 2018, 9am - 5pm
Do you have a wood-and-canvas canoe at home that needs a little love?
Participants in the canoe restoration clinic will learn how to re-canvas a wood-and-canvas canoe and perform basic structural repairs (for example; replacing a rib, or repairing damaged planking) from experienced canoe builder, Pam Wedd* of Bearwood Canoe Company. You will leave with the confidence, know-how and hands-on experience needed to restore your own canoe.
Interested participants may bring their own canoe for a thorough analysis and diagnosis and will leave with all the experience necessary to repair, re-canvas, fill and finish their own canoe – BUT you will not be working on your own canoe during the course.
This is an inspiring weekend!
Please note: Participants will not be working on their own canoes during the clinic. You do not need to bring a canoe to the clinic in order to participate. Sources for supplies and materials will be provided at the clinic.
