Diane Salguero is a highly skilled local finisher with over twenty years of professional experience. Diane is an engaging and very popular instructor. She will show you how to strip, paint, and varnish your boats, spars, and other related objects and explain how to choose the right products & tools, while teaching you the tips and tricks of the trade. Demonstrations and lots of hands on work make this a valuable class for anyone who appreciates a beautiful finish.
Course outline

Diane’s instruction will focus on selecting the correct tools for the job, how to properly prepare for the task at hand, the right paint or varnish for the task and conditions, and the precise techniques for getting the perfect finish every time.

This will be an intensive class that will be centered on hands-on learning, so students should dress for the work.

We’ll provide the basic safety equipment and the paint, varnish, thinner and tools necessary to learn how to do a good job. While students may bring projects on which to work, we’ll have a boat and several projects that will make good objects on which to learn the basics of the craft as we prepare for the summer season.
