Frost River Old No. 3 Canoe PackIn this class, you will sew your own canoe pack! We will help you build the skills necessary to sew a fully functional envelope style, No. 3 canoe pack.

Bill and Vivette have years of experience teaching this class. They will provide all the materials, knowledge, equipment, and expertise to teach you how to sew and rivet your own canoe pack. This is an original envelope-style pack with traditional styling and featuring solid brass hardware, waxed canvas and premium leather. This is the way they used to be built, and the way we still do it today.

This pack will include leather back-straps, hand-pounded rivets, a tumpline, a map-pocket, buckles, and pack reinforcement.
