Manchester Art Fair

15th - 17th November

A fantastic showcase of new and emerging art & artists held at Manchester Central Convention Centre!

We are proud to be exhibiting at MAF again this November.

Each year, we hold an internal call-out for submissions, selected with independent curators to showcase a changing selection of contemporary artworks from some of our 300 members and printmakers.

We love this opportunity to spread our passion for printmaking and promote this exciting art form. We also have some of our experienced tutors with us to bring some live printmaking action for you to watch and learn about some new techniques! 

Save the dates in your diary and book your tickets to come see us and support local artists!

Have a question about our events and exhibitions?

How do I exhibit with Hot Bed Press?

If you want to show with Hot Bed Press you have to be a member. We have a few membership options including Associate Membership for those who can't get to us to print at Hot Bed, but would love you to have the opportunity to show and sell with us.

How do I hear about exhibitions quicker?

We update the website regularly, but the quickest and most direct ways of hearing about exhibitions, print fairs and other shows is to be on our mailing list* or to folllow us on social media. * To get on our mailing list for exhibitions phone us or email us at
