We are super excited to be launching our Autumn/Winter season of workshops!

We think that our latest programme has some real gems. With workshops ranging from one morning all the way through to a full year we offer something to suit everyone. We are extremely pleased to have a special series of workshops on and around book arts following the Manchester Artists’ Book Fair in a really full week. There’s lots more besides. Read on.

The courses will run from October to December and with the Manchester Artists’Book Fair running on Friday 17th & Saturday 18th October, to complement the book fair we are also running a special set of workshops and events at Hot Bed Press in a packed week.

You can join us for a morning a day or even the whole week. Book for the whole week of Book Arts events for £300, (£250 to members).

Call Andy on 0161 743 3111 to book your places on one or more of our new workshops!
