  • Really enjoyed attending his week along class. very nice work shop and John is great person , along with his father I learned a lot from his class. Started watching his videos on his old web site, Then when he changed to his new web site, I could never get back in to finish watching them. However the ones I have watched made it easy to keep up with what I learned in his class. plus it great as a refresher because I don’t do canvass every day.

  • I’m a lifetime Boater and I took the course about a year and a half ago. Don’t think about it just sign up and take the course, you won’t regret it. John’s knowledge, expertise, professionalism, and teaching skills are great. The small classes makes a great teaching and learning environment. The end result is something you can take and start or improve your own business. Well worth the time and money.

  • This class is very informative. I am a complete beginner to marine canvas and was able to learn the fundamentals as well as a few tricks that can only be acquired with decades in the business. This workshop course along with the videos I purchased will teach me what I need to know to become a quality canvas fabricator.

  • I Completed the class today and I couldn’t wait to write a review. This class gets a 10 out of 10. I was never so happy and excited to get up to go to school. The amount of money this cost in my opinion should be 3 times as much with the earning potential that you walk away with. John is extremely knowledgeable and great to work with. John provides you with the knowledge, contacts and resources to be successful. Best money that I have ever spent and would strongly recommend this class to anyone!
