20/20 Print Exchange

Hot Bed Press http://www.hotbedpress.org/show_title.phtml?category=homepage&ref=0 have organised a print exchange between 10 workshops with the only criteria that the prints be presented on 20 x 20 cm square paper. Each individual artist had to complete an edition of 24 prints and their work was exchanged as a whole with another workshop, which in our case was Cork Printmakers http://www.corkprintmakers.ie/ . Each studio receives a random selection of prints from all the studios.

All 120 works can be viewed at http://www.flickr.com/photos/hot_bed_press/

The other workshops involved are:

West Yorkshire Print Workshop Leinster Printmaking Studio

Prospect Studios Seacourt Print Workshop

Cork Printmakers

Black Church Print Studio

Our exchanged prints can also be seen at our open studio day this Saturday - see previous post.

No Glue Needed artists' book workshop

Simon Goode returns to Birmingham Printmakers for a one day workshop which will offer more creative ideas for creating artists' books.


I will be running a one-day workshop in non-adhesive bookbinding at Birmingham Printmakers on Saturday 11 December 2011, 10am - 4pm.

We will be learning how to make two different bindings: the Coptic stitch which originated around 200BC, and a range of Japanese stab bindings. We will also discuss how the bindings can be adapted to our individual needs: to hold prints, to develop into artists' books, and so on.

The course fee is £45 for the day, or £40 for members of Birmingham Printmakers and students.

If you wish to book a place please email me. There is a limited number of places, so please let me know as soon as you can.

Best wishes,
