Here at Hot Bed Press we are dedicated to the support and promotion of everything print. We have grown over the last 10 years into one of the largest open access print workshops in the UK. We boast 7 screen beds, 5 etching presses, 2 Albions and a Columbian as well as many more smaller prerses, a great letterpress resource and lots more besides.
We always welcome new members and our courses offer anyone with an interest in printmaking, letterpress and book arts the opportunity to get started or to learn more from experts in the field. Like printmaking as a whole we are always adapting and developing new ways of working whilst carrying on age old traditions practiced by the masters.
Above all we are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere here is quite simply a creative hub and a great working environment.
