Sold Out! – Wood-and-Canvas Canoe Restoration

May 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - May 27, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


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.

For more information, or to be put on the waiting list please email or call 705.748.9153 x218
