Hot Bed Press is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. We operate on charitable purposes with the aim to support artists, to promote printmaking and to educate a wide audience in printmaking and related arts. (Our company no. is 3704774.) We are not a charity, but are considering the option of applying for charitable purposes.
All money we raise goes into the running of the workshop and maintaining professional facilities.
Once a year we run an Under-The-Bed Sale whereby members clear out prints, (from under their bed?), and we have a large bargain sale of prints open to the public. This also raises valuable money for reinvestment in the equipment. Each year we identify a large piece of equipment to purchase from this and set that as our target. In 2011 we raised over £800 and purchased two lovely large rollers and some etching tools, the previous year we invested in racking and new screens, plus new etching blankets.
