Environmentally friendly wood and stretch fabric stages

FESTIVAL CLIENT – Tommy Lyle, Wood of a Kind

Wood of a Kind Stage and BedouinFlex fabric

Wood Stage and BedouinFlex fabric (Tommy Lyle, Wood of a Kind)

We first chatted to Tommy Lyle of Wood of a Kind from Boulder Colorado back in January, 2016. We instantly resonated with his philosophy and approach to his craft. He is a rustic wood worker and festival stages are just one of the ways he expresses himself.

For his first project working with us, he chose Bedouinflex Premium fabric for the canopy of the stage in order to insulate and waterproof the wooden structure. He was pleased with how easy it was to work with the fabric. The concept: the stage needed to be permanent, but the waterproof canopy would be assembled and disassembled according to the up-coming event.

This was a particularly large structure (90” x 50”; 27m x 15m) but the fabric is so lightweight that he was able to wash it himself and only needed the assistance of one other colleague to put it up.

Wealth in Sharing

Stretch Marquee and Fabric Structures, SEAM School -in-a-Box and Stephen Collier

‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’ Winston Churchill

Surely one of the greatest things a human being can do is share their talent and abilities to better the lives of others. Well, that’s exactly the situation we found with SEAM (Sustain Education Art Melanesia) who provide a creative learning environment for making books and SEAM Design Manager Stephen Collier of Stephen Collier Architects, Australia. They set their sights on Papua New Guinea and it’s rural communities who need education facilities and support.

ATMOSPHERE IN MINUTES

LIGHT WAYS – HOW TO CREATE WOW

When presented with a space or area that needs to be used for an event, it’s like being given a blank canvas – inspiration to get the creative juices flowing. So you’ve decided on the theme of the event but the next thing is to set the atmosphere, create the mood, and what better way to do that than by using lights – lots and lots of different lights!

Spotlight – CLIENTS LATEST CREATIONS

The Stretch Tent was purchased for Willowtree Marquees and used for Michael and Katie’s wedding – the marquees maiden voyage. ‘It was great for marketing the business and receiving our first couple of wedding hires,’ adds Michael. ‘We also recently supplied the tent to a small music festival outside of Grafton NSW called ‘Rocktober in the Clover’. This event was situated in the beautiful surrounds of Pillar Valley. We attended the festival and the tent was a winner with them hiring annually from here on in.’ Michaels business approach is to listen to his clients and provide Uber-attention to detail. They’ll spend endless hours sourcing timber poles to suit a theme as well as finding just the right furniture that works with the decor.
