Red Hot Press

Workshop update 26.07.21

We have decided to take a well-earned break from workshop activities from the end of August. This means that we will be pausing all of our courses from the end of August. This is in order to give us a period of time to take a break, reflect, and take stock.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in and support of Red Hot Press over the past 17 years. We have enjoyed passing on our knowledge and passion for Printmaking.

But, before we hang up our aprons to pause our activities we do have two more courses to offer. These are Carborundum and Drypoint Weekend 14th - 15th August and Photo Transfer Weekend 21st - 22nd August. There are spaces available on both of these courses.

Thank-you for a lovely afternoon last Monday, I really enjoyed it. I have now got a whole lot of ideas whirling around my head and I just need a block of uninterrupted time to execute them.
