Christmas is around the corner and we are now closed until Thursday 5th January. We would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support over the past 12 months. We have continued to grow and, in the current climate, to be running 50 courses a year whilst increasing membership and seeing continued regular usage of the facilities, we have to be proud of our achievements.
Thanks to all those who have come in as members, attended courses and supported our exhibitions. A big THANK YOU to all those who volunteer and keep the workshop running and members supported, and also to the Board of Directors who give up their time, energy and experience to help oversee the organisation and plan the future.
BREAKING NEWS: we have a packed programme of courses to start 2012 off.
Courses will be starting on Monday 6th February with Print Starter Pack and Poster Printing, and the whole programme will run until the end of April. Also included in the programme are Photo-screen, Letterpress, Gum Arabic Transfer, Presentation Boxes, The Illustrated Book, Complete Bookmaker, Devore Printing, Chapbook Letterpress weekend, Experimental Etching, The Printed Product and Japanese Woodcut. Dates and details to follow after Christmas.
Also following on from the success of the Demonstrations/talks, (if you came to the Devore or Vaseline Etch talks you will know that they are a great insight), we will be running demonstrations/talks in Altered Books, 19th Century Photographic Printing, and Monoprinting. Once again they will be pay on the door and a concession of just £5.00 for members. More on these in the New Year.
In fact more details on all our courses will be out from Thursday 5th January and we are hoping for the usual flurry of bookings. Don’t forget that Members get to see the course list before it is publicly released which is just another great reason to join.
We hope to see you all in the New Year. Your membership and support helps us to be one of the largest print workshops in the UK. We aim to continue to offer a friendly and supportive facility for printmakers and to spread the good word of printmaking far and wide….. with your help!
Best wishes for the festive season.
Sean and all the team at Hot Bed Press
