How the Monthly Membership Academy works

The Boat Seats, Cushions & Covers Academy



Choose Your Package - 1,3 or 12 months, once you sign up you will get a welcome email and instructions. You will also get your link to join the Private Members Group.

Pick the course you want to learn first - I recommend the machine one if you havent used a machine before, but its up to you. You can run through the courses from start to finish or pick different ones out.

Once a week I will be live in the Facebook Group so you can ask me any questions. If you cant make the time Im there just send me the question anyway and I will explain it in the group. The lives are recorded so you can watch in your own time. Your question might help someone else too so dont be shy ;-) If you cant make UK time dont worry as it is all recorded but I wont let you struggle and will arrange time to help you that suits us both. We have students in America & Canada that we regularly help so dont worry.

Keep checking the group and members area as I will add things to it regularly. You should be notified but just in case my email goes to spam.

Learn at your own pace or stick to a structure. If you need me to keep you accountable let me know as I want you to succeed so I will help how I can. A set program will help to keep you focused.

I will also be doing some live trainings maybe on Zoom or Facebook live so keep an eye out for messages from me.

I will encourage you to show your progress off, you dont have to but its good to get feedback. You can do this in the group or just to me.

There is a certificate available at the end of each section. I just need to see your finished job to send you one. Keep practicing and you will be fantastic. 

The Boat Seats, Cushions & Covers Academy is fantastic if you want to learn everything to maybe start your own business or do your own boat up with the support of someone by your side every step of the way. The group will also be helpful to you as you can help each other along the way.

Take a look at some reviews from my past students

What Past Students Say

Kerrie, UK

I highly recommend Undacover marine upholstery and covers courses. I can't speak highly enough of the tutor Sam, who is amazingly skilled, knowledgeable, experienced, patient and supportive. I have learnt so much from attending the Masterclass, and gained so many new skills to take into my own business. The pace of the course is well balanced and flexible, allowing it to be adapted to different skill levels and individual requirements. Overall a great value course, which delivers exactly what is says on the tin!


I had minimal sewing experience and Sam gave very thorough and patient instructions. Afterward I felt confident to go and test my new skills on my own boat! (Turned out great) The one thing I cannot credit enough is the continued support and willingness to answer questions after the course ended. I can’t wait to take the canvas cover course to continue my learning :)

Natalie, Canada

I took a marine canvas and upholstery course with Sam  with the intention of using my learned knowledge to start my own business. The course was informative and thorough. The course covered all the details that I would run into. Sam was extremely knowledgeable and has been wonderful in answering any questions I have had since finishing the course. Wish I could take it again.
