Following the Government announcements on Sunday 1st December Hot Bed Press will be closing to members from 4.00pm on Wednesday 4th November. We will be planning to reopen on Wednesday 2nd December, depending on the lockdown not being extended.

We are sorry but any bookings to use the workshop already made for 4th November onwards are cancelled!

We aim to continue to run the Complete Printmaker and Complete Book Arts courses throughout November as planned as we are not required to close the educational aspect of what we do under lockdown restrictions. We are committed to fulfilling the full year-long courses.

We are following closely the guidelines and rules as they are updated and passed through parliament. We are also continuing to operate under strict safety guidelines and are monitoring closely all measures to keep everyone safe.

We had steadily been building up usage as safe as we could since we re-opened on 1st July. It was nice to see you all and to get the workshop active again. Thanks for all the nice comments on how good the place looks after a bit of a spruce up during lockdown no.1, and thanks for all the support. With all your help we will keep going and be back in full operation as soon as we can.

We hope to see you all in a month. Look out for bulletins, updates and social media posts.


All the best & stay safe

Sean Rorke – Artistic Director


p.s. We are still trying to carry on with the 20:20 sort and all that entails and will be in touch with all those involved.
