It doesn’t matter if you’re already an artist or just fancy learning a new hobby, the classes provided at Hot Bed Press cater for all, and will give you a comprehensive run down of whatever technique it is you’ve chosen to learn, as well as practical experience.
One of their upcoming sessions is ‘Typewriter Art,’ which runs over 2 evenings, at a cost of just £55 (or £45 if you join!) There’s been a real boom amongst artists recently, especially locally, regarding the use of text and different typefaces in art. An impressive skill that has been showcased by several artists is the use of typewriters to create images. Afterall, they’re still beautiful and quirky pieces of machinery, so why not put them to good use rather than discard them in place of laptops?
On this course you will get the opportunity to experiment with several different types of typewriters to explore mark making, and to turn text into images. This is very much inspired by artist’s use of text recently, and perhaps with the likes of the Salford Type Foundry popping up locally to celebrate all things typed!
If typewriters don’t tickle your fancy, Hot Bed Press continuously run courses of all kinds which you won’t find at normal art colleges, so get down and learn a new skill, or add to your artistic practice!
