    We hopefully (fingers and toes crossed) have something very exciting happening next month…
    Hot Bed Press member Kamila Kasprowicz will be showing work in ‘Interspaces’.
    Kamila will be joined by artists Aleksander Ostrowski, Wojciech Osuchowski, Justyna Stefariczyk and Ryszard Pielesz who are all based in Poland.
    We are really excited to invite international artists to show in our workshop – even if they can’t be here in person!
    Look out for more details soon.

    We will be re-opening to members from Wednesday 1st July!

     

    Unfortunately we cannot take on any new members at this time.

    Use of the workshop will be on a strictly limited basis and with slightly different opening hours.
    We will be opening between 10.00am and 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.

    Each day after 4.00pm there will be a full clean down and sterilisation of the whole workshop ready for the next day.
    Numbers will be limited to 12 members per day until further notice whilst we slowly get back to normal.

    This will be split to 4 people per area; screenprint, relief print/letterpress and etching.
    You may only book one session per week to enable us to accommodate as many members as we can; sorry, no block booking.
    We will only be taking bookings by phone on Wednesday and Thursday mornings between 10.00am and 1.00pm, and only for booking spaces the following week. We will not be taking bookings by e-mail.

    We will constantly review the booking and numbers allowed in and will hope to increase availability as long as we feel it is safe for you as members and for staff working here.

    Stay safe! We will see you all soon

    We are pleased to announce the launch of Hot Bed Editions a new scheme to promote the best in fine art prints and raise money towards special projects.

    The first print is a 5 colour screen-print from artist Raul Gutierrez who designed and painted our lovely mural.

    You can see more of Raul’s work on his website: www.loya.co.uk

    We will be selling this limited edition of 50 prints for £50 each. All money will go towards Hot Bed Press and help keep us afloat during this tricky time. The prints are now available to pre-order and will be available to collect when Hot Bed Press re-opens.

    Our Summer Course programme has been really popular with courses including Introduction to Screen-Print, Woodcut and Waterless Litho already fully booked! We still have places on some of our June and July courses; The Folded Book, Portfolio Box Making and Expanded Screen-Print but be quick to avoid missing out!

  • February20th

    Hot Bed Press proudly presents our latest courses for 2020. Our courses at the end of 2019 were so popular that extra courses overran until 2nd February. We have been busy planning for brand new courses with just the right mix of beginners’ classes to new approaches for printmakers wanting to expand their knowledge. We’ve listened to the requests for more screenprinting courses and have 6 different courses to choose from including Understanding Colour in Screen and Screenprint Level 2. Not interested in Screenprinting this time around; there’s more with Monoprint, Drypoint, Woodcut, Copper Sulphate Etching, Experiments in Waterless Lithography, Creative Collagraphs, The Folded Book and Portfolio Box Making Whether it’s for a day a weekend or 5 evenings you can learn so much from our experienced tutors. We know they will be popular. That’s why we’ve put on as many as we can fit in.

    Book early as places are strictly limited and courses book extremely quickly.

    We are also planning a Summer School of Print between 8th & 16th August. We will announce this after Easter, but expect weekend, week-long, two and 3 day courses all in an action packed 9 days!
