At PBS Custom Canvas, we offer a comprehensive marine canvas training program.  We have identified a need for qualified canvas fabricators across the country and abroad.  If you are looking for a second career or just getting started in a first career, marine canvas fabrication is a relatively inexpensive business to start.
Our canvas training programs are 4 days long, hands on workshops that walk you through every aspect of the fabrication process.  The program is set up to accommodate beginners as well as experienced fabricators looking to broaden their expertise.  
  • The basic workshop teaches the basic nuts and bolts of canvas fabrication.  Everything that you need to know about sewing techniques, materials, fitting, repairs, and business practices is covered in detail.  The class finishes up with each student building a miniature cockpit cover.  4 day workshop $700.00
  • The mooring cover workshop is for the fabricator that has completed the basic workshop or has some sewing experience.  The class teaches the fabrication of a mooring cover.  It encompasses all aspects of the process, including fitting the boat, drawstring and motor cover construction, and materials.  4 day workshop $700.00
  • The enclosure workshop is for the fabricator that has completed the basic workshop or who has some sewing and fabricating experience.  This workshop focuses on building a full boat enclosure.  We will typically be working on a pontoon boat, but the same techniques apply to runabouts.  This workshop will cover screened window building, fitting curtains, zippers, and materials.  4 day workshop $700.00
  • The pontoon cover workshop is for the fabricator who has completed the basic workshop or has some sewing/fabricating experience.  A pontoon boat cover is in many ways different and more challenging than a typical boat cover.  In this class we cover boat fitting, sewing techniques, velcro flaps, and materials.  4 day workshop $700.00

At PBS custom canvas we are committed to keeping our canvas workshops small and offer the class with as few as 2 students.  We feel that this permits a more quality interaction between teacher and student.  Our facility is a working canvas shop, allowing the students to see how a shop is set up and how the business works.  
We are located in Jamestown PA which is considered a summer resort town minutes away from Pymatuning lake.  There are many camp grounds, bed and breakfasts, and cottage rentals available for out of town students.
A list of these is available upon request.
