Hot Bed Press

Centre for Creative Printmaking

Hot Bed Press is a specialist centre for creative printmaking providing access to professional facilities and expertise to everyone with an interest in printmaking and book arts. Membership is open to all.

Embracing the industrial heritage of our Salford locality, we respect and preserve traditional printmaking skills, equipment and techniques. At the same time, we have a robust, modern approach that supports sustainability, regeneration and innovation.

An extensive education programme brings new audiences to printmaking and expands the knowledge of creative printmakers through lifelong learning and master classes. We champion printmaking through exchanges, exhibitions, events and outreach activities and collaborate with our local partners. We also support artists with bursaries, placements, volunteer schemes, residencies and research fellowships.

Hot Bed Press aims to be the catalyst for the creation of new work, experimentation and technical innovation, and to help artists to challenge the nature and perceptions of printmaking. Extending past the boundaries of the workshop we actively seek links with other organisations and to collaborate with print workshops nationally and internationally.

• Spacious studios with extensive facilities for screen printing, etching (Including aquatint) letterpress, relief printing, book art – and much more

• Open 5 days a week plus Thursday evening and the last Saturday of every month

• Full support from print technicians

• Range of low cost membership options

• Evening, weekend and year-long courses covering an extensive range of print process.
