The Hot Bed Print Fair

a weekend filled with handmade prints, gifts, creativity, and a love for all things printed!

We had a great time on the August Bank Holiday... with 30 stalls showcasing an array of handprinted goods, zines, posters and book arts.

We had over 670 visitors and lots of sales.

In addition to the diverse selection of stalls, we lined up some family friendly print activities for visitors to get involved and creative. A chance to learn new skills, techniques and get hands-on with printmaking. There was stamp printing with rubbers and monoprinting with leaves and flowers.

The fair was given a lovely atmosphere with infectious beats and tunes provided by Vinyl Night Radio.

Our next event will be our Christmas Open Studios on Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd December with our Under-The-Bed Sale, (hundreds of bargain prints from some of our 300 members), a large show of 20:20 prints from across the UK and workshops around the world.
