2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Screen Printing with Hot Bed Press

Join Hot Bed Press and create a handmade screen print using traditional screen printing methods. Created in collaboration with local primary schools and inspired by the artist Sister Mary Corita, these posters promise to radiate positive vibes!



Hot Bed Press is A HOT BED OF ACTIVITY and the place to be for print. From screenprint to etching, relief print to letterpress, they’ve got large well-equipped facilities and the expertise to support you, whether you are new to print, or an experienced printmaker. Set up in 1994 when a small group of printmakers dedicated their time to creating a space for people to print and learn about print, Hot Bed Press has since become a staple to printers in Manchester and beyond.
