Classic Cedar Canvas Canoe Restoration Workshop

This restoration program offers instruction in restoring an old canoe to its previous splendor. Each student may bring their own canoe, or one will be provided. The instructor will assess each canoe and students will proceed to restore or replace the needed parts. By end of the week the canoe will be re-canvassed and ready to take home for the finishing work. The instructor must have a prior conversation with the canoe owner to determine the materials needed and the feasibility of restoration in the allotted time. If a canoe is provided by Sagamore for restoration, it will remain as part of the Sagamore fleet for use in their educational programs. (Minimum two boats)
