Here at Hot Bed Press we are dedicated to the support and promotion of everything print. We have grown over the last 11 years, since moving into The Casket Works. We are now one of the largest open access print workshops in the UK.

We boast 8 screen beds, 5 etching presses, 2 Albions, a Columbian and Gem letterpress press, as well as many more smaller presses, a great letterpress resource with over 200 cases of type from small to large wooden type and lots more besides.

We always welcome new members and our courses offer anyone with an interest in printmaking, letterpress and book arts the opportunity to get started or to learn more from experts in the field. Like printmaking as a whole we are always adapting and developing new ways of working whilst carrying on age old traditions practiced by the masters.

Above all we are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere here is quite simply a creative hub and a great working environment.
