    The open studios event was brilliant. We had between 350 and 400 people through the doors at the weekend.

    and we raised £1,600, of which around 50% goes to Hot Bed Press and 50% to the artists. We will be buying some lovely equipment for the workshop including a large spindle roller which will help our members and course goers large relief prints and roll-overs for etching. We will also be getting some more benching and tools.

    Thanks to everyone who helped us set up and get the workshop looking lovely. Thanks too to all those who came and bought prints!
