Wood-Canvas Canoe Restoration
Take home the skills necessary to restore your own wooden canoe! Join us on a drop-in basis, for one day or both weekends, to repair and restore traditional wood-canvas canoes. Wales and keels will be removed; old canvas will be stripped to inspect for hull damage; repairs will be made to ribs, planks, seats, etc. If time allows, students will apply a coat of preservative, stretch on new canvas and apply filler. Students may be able to bring their own canoes by prior arrangement; Inquire at registration.
