Xmas - Open Studios

Hot Bed Press


Join us for our popular annual Open Studios and Under-the Bed Sale. The aim is for this to be our biggest and best yet!

Explore our Open Studios, meet our 20 resident artists and studio holders, discover their creative spaces and buy original artwork. 

Browse the Under-The-Bed Sale, an opportunity for our members to sell prints, perhaps proofs, seconds or older end of editions at lower than the usual selling price.

Visit our Ground Floor, featuring this year's 20:20 Print Exchange Exhibition and sale.

PLUS on Saturday 1 December, at 1pm and 3pm, we're offering free print demos in our first floor workshop areas – a chance to delve into the art of printmaking!

This is annual event is our special way to raise money for Hot Bed Press, (a lot of our equipment was bought from the proceeds of The Under The Bed Sale and sale of past 20:20 Print Exchange prints).

It's a win win for all... and a chance to bag some unique handmade gifts just in time for Christmas!

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 exhibitions@hotbedpress.org.
