A week long workshop activity in printmaking (From Monday the 24th of July to Friday 28th)- you can access the printmaking workshop to complete an edition of 25 20cmx20cm prints to contribute to the 2023 Hotbed Press 20:20 Print Exchange

Students can access the Printmaking Workshop from 9am til 4.30pm from Monday to Friday of the week commencing July 24th in order to make an edition of prints. Mike and Will the printmaking technicians will be on hand to provide instruction and workshop support throughout.

The 20:20 Print Exchange is an annual event organised by Hot Bed Press in Salford- participants pay an entry fee of 15 pounds and submit an edition of 25 prints. In return, each contributor receive a box of 20 randomised prints from other participating workshops. Prints must be 20cm square and made using printmaking techniques but otherwise there is no set theme or other requirement. You can make work that reflects your practice and interests.

Prints submitted to the exchange go on a world touring exhibition organised by Hot Bed Press. There will also be an exhibition of prints by Manchester School of Art participants in one of the art school buildings before the Christmas break.
