We have an exciting range of new courses out starting in February and will be answering enquiries from 2nd January.

With Table-Top TextilesPhoto-screen and Typewriter Art in such high demand  last ‘season’ we just had to bring them back again. It was great to see a packed workshop looking completely different and full of vibrancy; from looking like a busy typing pool to being adorned with colourful lengths of fabric on every window and wall.

We are also repeating the taster sessions with courses over 2 evenings for just £55. These courses give a basic introduction to the possibilities of print and teach you enough to go on and carry on printing in our lovely workshop. This time we have varied the offering by making them one day courses on a Sunday; Come and experience Monoprinting, Drypoint/Carborundum, Collagraphs or Relief Printing. 

We are really pleased to bring back letterpress and though it was sad to see the retirement of Graham Moss who has given so much to make our letterpress courses a huge success, it’s also great to change things around a bit and welcome Elizabeth Willow to teach A Taste of Letterpress. Towards the end of the programme too in April we are introducing Letterpress for Designers where you can typeset your own CD cover and get a bespoke image block made and printed.

Also introducing Life Printing; 4 evenings of life drawing directly into print. This unique course offers the best of both worlds. jeni Nuttall will take you through 3 different print processes working directly from  a life model.


Bookmaking For Artists, (level 1), gives a great new approach to making books, with folding and stitching techniques and book compositions taught in a friendly yet structured way.

…and there’s more. Presentation Boxes, Etching, Block PrintedTextilesMarvellous Mezzotint and Photopolymer Printing.

We should have something for everyone.


The full programme will go online in the first week in January. Courses start on 6th February with Table Top Textiles.


We will take bookings on a first come first served basis. Please bear with us as after the Christmas and new year break we catch up with everything. We expect a deluge of e-mails on our return back to the wonderful world of Hot Bed Press. Of course places are strictly limited, but we always end up scheduling more courses to meet demand.


If you want to hear about courses and events earlier get on our mailing list by sending us your full contact details.


Best wishes
