Following the latest Government announcements on Monday 4th January 2021 Hot Bed Press will be closed to members under lockdown restrictions until further notice.

We hope to reopen around 22nd February but await news following a Government review due on 15th February.

We will be making further announcements on this and will follow all government guidelines.

The current Complete Printmaker and Complete Book Arts courses are on hold until we can run the last few weeks to fulfil our commitment to the courses. (This also means that planned year-long Complete courses due to start in an already postponed start date of 1st March, will now be reviewed for new start dates as soon as we know more.) We will fit in year-long courses in 2021. We just can’t plan for definite dates just yet.

We are planning as best we can to restart all courses when we can in 2021, but cannot safely and confidently set these courses until there’s a clearer picture of the easing of restrictions and lower risks from covid 19.

With all your help and support we will keep going and be back in full operation as soon as we can.

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


All the best & stay safe

Sean Rorke – Artistic Director
