Recovering of a garden party tent/gala marquee using pvc vinyl.
The standard covers on this style of party garden tent are made from woven plastic that degrades badly in sunlight and can be very difficult to clean, the covering we use is a considerably more durable lightweight pvc vinyl and can come in various colours. The client this time wanted white and no sides as it was used as a rain cover for people as they cued at there food outlet. Colours and designs can be bespoke just get in touch for details.
The Ropewalk Barton upon Humber
Repurposed sails for sun shades.
Re-use is the best form of recycling and we love working with repurposed materials to make new things. Here we have a project for The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber. The client asked us to come up with a method to reuse two sails once used on sailboats on the Humber estuary, we worked closely with the venue and a local engineer to manufacture and secure the new shades to the building.
24 Meter Carousel Circus Big top
24 Meter Circus Carousel Big top, We recovered this tent for ourselves and is the biggest structure we rent. This was our first step into manufacturing apart from the odd repair here and there. "Talk about starting small !!!! " We used the old and rather leaky cover to make a template for a new skin. The project pushed us to our limit but we achieved our goal and "Betty Big Top" has since been used as a stage, wedding reception venue, circus rehearsal space, theatre and conference hall.
Repairs / Gym Mat
This was a quick repair of a gymnastics coaching block for a local Parkour Academy, they wanted to keep costs down so didn't mind the mismatch.

Bespoke stage cover
This bespoke cover was designed and manufactured to fit the clients portable stage made from aluminium truss on a trailer base.
