Hood Marine Canvas Training


Learn the Marine Canvas Trade with an Certified Master Fabric Craftsman

Mark Hood, MFC and his wife Deb have spent the last 34 years refining their fabrication techniques to provide "only the best" custom canvas for our customers and training for our students. We host marine canvas training workshops every year at our shop in Merrimac, MA. Many successful shops from around the world have come to Hood for their training. No other canvas school comes close to our years of experience and innovation in the marine canvas trade. Be sure to check out our Workshop Photos and Workshop Testimonial pages to get a feel for our small workshop size and informal teaching environment that makes learning the "Hood" way fun.

Power or Sail, Hood Canvas can provide the custom canvas you need. We use only quality time tested materials along with very meticulous fabrication techniques. Solarfix lifetime Teflon thread is standard. We offer 60 GA Makrolon Polycarbonate and 80 GA Acrylite Bonded Acrylic Windows as extra cost options. We never cut corners and we train our students to do the same. Every piece is sequentially built to our exacting standards, just ask any Hood customer. As always, it is best to plan ahead!
