Are you ready for the next step in your DIY boat canvas journey? Join us for our canvas covers class, where we’ll discuss the design, patterning, and fabrication challenges when making boat and equipment covers. Techniques not covered in our boat canvas boot camp, including sewing darts, Hidden zippers for large panels, and drawstring pockets, will be reviewed.
Please note: Because of the limited time and depth of information to be covered, this class is structured as a lecture with demonstrations by the presenter. Attendees looking to apply the concepts covered in class are encouraged to sign up for the maker space held the next day.
