The Canvas Project

How it started

It all started when we obtained prices for canopies from a number of suppliers. But we quickly found out how expensive this is to order new .Then over to YouTube to see if this could be done on its own.

And slowly but surely we bought the necessary equipment. We also will share a full list of what you need and should have to be able to do this yourself as well as with approximate prices on what the materials costs.
