About Black Country Atelier


Continuing the manufacturing heritage of Birmingham and the Black Country

Originally founded in Shropshire, Black Country Atelier is a 3D prototyping workshop now based in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, UK.

The Atelier’s 3D Factory is where we run our regular programme of workshops and classes, and is an affordable space where people can use and explore the latest technologies available. We have a set of easy-to-use 3D printing and scanning tools that everyone from designers through to hobbyists can use.

We travel around the country to deliver tailor made events and workshops for schools and cultural venues; to share our enthusiasm for technologies that make stuff with members of the public.

Finally we undertake design commissions, collaborating with a wide range of people from artists and film makers to steel fabricators and manufacturers.

Underlying our work is a goal to explore new ways of making with like minded people; following the great traditions of industry and innovation in the Black Country.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get making!
