Hot Bed Press Summer courses are now live on the website!

We have spiced things up with a mini Summer School at the beginning of August and are really pleased to have Repeat Pattern with Kiran and Mandy and Japanese Woodcut and Box Making combined into one course with Lucy Schofield. Plus we have Extraordinary Ornament bringing the delights of decorative type, Gelatine Printing here for the first time and Copper Sulphate Etching with guest tutor Kate Desforges. There’s also fun to be had in our weekend of Urban Print Club and Gum Arabic Transfer. All this mixed with seasoned favourites back by popular demand. Last season’s courses booked up in record time so don’t delay call the workshop and book today!

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