"I just wanted to send you a hello and let you know how things are going for us up here on Wellesley Island in the 1000 Islands, NY. There are several other canvas fabricators in the area (with still enough business for all of us) but we seem to be the only ones who do upholstery. We have pumped out some really nice pieces and think of you every time we use all the tools and techniques we learned from our week with you. Thank you again for a really valuable experience."

“I went to Florida last month, and found invaluable tips – doing the same things that I learned on the videos, and continuing to tweak how our shop does dodgers and enclosures. Within the first day, I felt that the trip had been worth it. We are standardizing our shop methods to the Marine Canvas Training Institute methods, and are VERY please with the results.”

The Marine Canvas Training Institute is located in Palmetto Florida and is the original hands on teaching facility geared towards training you in making boat canvas and boat upholstery. We have over 35 years of canvas fabricating experience and have been teaching students from all across the US, and internationally for over 25 years to successfully produce quality marine canvas products.
Marine Canvas Training Institute offers three 5 day marine canvas and upholstery training seminars. The seminars offer intensive ‘hands-on’ training that includes materials that go in to making different canvas products, how to make bimini tops, enclosures, dodgers and sprayhoods, full covers, cushions and formed seat upholstery. Click on the Class Information page, then click on each seminar offered for a complete description.
We are now offering class refresher/auditing opportunities. This means you can attend the Basic Boat Canvas, Advanced Boat Canvas and Boat Upholstery at a reduced price. At the lower price you are allowed to watch and take notes only but not participate in the fabrication process of projects.
We also offer a full training library covering all details on how to make the different products.
Along with the canvas training classes and training library we have a line of quality tools used in the canvas making business. Click on Tools of the Trade page for pictures and prices.
No experience is necessary. We can help you get started or improve upon what you already know.
