We are back in the full swing of courses having had a little breather to gather ourselves, plan developments for Hot Bed Press and lots of work behind the scenes now that we own our building. To be honest it has been a well earned and necessary break from the relentless juggernaut of courses we run, which are always so popular. Our only real criticism is that people can’t always get on them as they are booked up so fast. (Here’s a clue, get in touch anyway, we always run more than originally advertised if the demand is there!)

As usual we have mixed things up a bit, added a bit of spice and tweaked and reinvented where we could to stay fresh and exciting. We hope you like what we have to offer and we look forward to hearing from you.

E-mail the workshop at info@hotbedpress.org or call us on 0161 743 3111 if you are interested/want to book!
