^ What he said!
Very useful, thanks. I'll try and come along to do the course. I've painted a few frames, but I'm very much self-taught and it would be good to learn how to do it properly.
Drop us an email when you're ready.
Is the course exclusively for frame builders? Or can anyone come providing you arrive with a naked frame? Would be interested in learning to paint properly.
Without aiming to sound aloof, our preference is for framebuilders simply because we know (or at least we hope) there's a shared understanding of the processes involved; some overlap on terms and techniques; a familiarity with specific tools, how a workshop works and an understanding of how the bike is assembled and the way that can alter and affect the processes.
We will (and have) take(n) on individuals who are able to provide a raw frameset once we've sounded each other out to some extent. Drop us an email via the website and we can talk you through it.
there was a guy in Sheffield England who was doing a workshop share. I believe he died recently though so maybe stuff for sale
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
