About the course:

Hot Bed Press is very pleased to announce that we will once again be running a year long course in book arts from January 2019. Run over 2 terms of 15 weeks this course is aimed at artists looking to explore and develop ideas through the form of the artists’ book. The course is not accredited, but students will ‘graduate’ with a Hot Bed Press certificate in Book Arts.

Throughout the 30 weeks you will develop knowledge of materials and techniques and will learn how to make a variety of book structures. These range from simple yet fascinating structures to more challenging multi-section hard-bound books. You will also learn how to make a beautiful clam-shell portfolio box to house some of the great books you have made on the course.

As well as equipping you with technical knowledge, the course will challenge you to explore narrative, sequencing, text & image, the relationship between form and content and how you can use the book form to interrogate and push your own practice and ideas.

The course will be tutored on Wednesday evenings between 6.00pm and 9.00pm with an additional 4 hours access to the workshop throughout the week. [Open hours are Mondays to Fridays 10am – 5pm plus Thursday evening to 9.00pm and the last Saturday of every month 11am – 4.00pm.] All students wanting more than 4 hours access per week will also be able to ‘top-up’ their hours with usage in the workshop at any time during open access throughout the week at the hourly rate.

Cost: £1,200.00 / £1,200.00 members
