Wood-and-Canvas Canoe Restoration Clinic – Oct 19 and 20, 2024

October 19 @ 9:00 AM October 20 @ 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) while being immersed in the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft.

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. You will leave with the confidence, know-how and hands-on experience needed to restore your own canoe.

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.

Dates: October 19th and 20th, 2024
Times: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, daily
$395 per person
