atelier

Our creative laboratory is the atelier in which our design ideas come to life. We specialise in sheet metal fabrication, coachbuilding and welding, using traditional and modern techniques for bespoke projects.

Our in house machine shop and fabrication area allows quality and timescale control over highly specialised work. We work with a variety of metals including steel, aluminium, brass and copper. We produce steel and aluminium bodywork for the restoration of vintage and classic cars and motorcycles as well as bespoke custom projects.

We love to work with natural and industrial materials to create beautiful and unique work. We can assist with the design and realisation of bespoke projects including furniture and sculpture.

WORKSHOPS

We love to share our knowledge and skills with inspired individuals who wish to learn the art of traditional sheet metalwork and wheeling.

We offer ‘one to one’ and ‘two to one’ courses all year round and welcome all levels of experience. We will show you how to produce hand finished panels and components with basic tools and equipment and also demonstrate how to use a wheeling machine to produce smooth surfaces on complex double curvature panels.

Courses can be tailored to suit your needs and focus on specific techniques. During the course, we can also touch upon the following in addition to the adjacent list of activities:

  • Pattern making: Measuring and marking out complex shapes and structures accurately

  • Jig building: Constructing basic jigs and fixtures to aid reproduction of original parts

  • Body construction: Aligning panels to create flowing bodylines and parallel gaps

  • Tool making: How to construct simple tooling to replicate original recesses etc.

At the end of the course, you will go away with a valuable set of skills and confidence necessary to tackle your own project. 

Please note: A deposit is required to secure your booking. The full payment must be made at the latest one week before the course begins. The deposit is not refundable.

 

OUR WORKSHOPS INCLUDE

  • Shaping: Hand forming and smoothing double curvature panels to accurately fit a jig and hammering smooth over a steel dolly. We will also teach you elementary use of the wheeling machine.

  • Flanging: Shrinking and stretching metal to form convex & concave curved flange. You will also learn how to wire a flanged edge.

  • TIG welding: Joining thin sheets of metal using a TIG welder with or without adding filler rod depending on the application. This is an important technique used in the making and fitting of repair panels and high quality fabrication to produce strong and aesthetically pleasing weld joints.

  • Oxy-acetylene [gas] welding: Joining thin sheets of metal using a gas torch with or without adding filler rod depending on the material and application. This is a traditional technique used in the making and fitting of repair panels to achieve a seamless joint.

  • Annealing: Annealing aluminium alloy to aid shaping.
