CALL TO ARTISTS
CARVE YOUR LARGE-SCALE WOODBLOCK AND PRINT
WITH BIG INK'S GIANT MOBILE PRESS


BIG INK is hosting a weekend of monumental woodblock printing at 3S Artspace in the summer of 2021 on August 28th and 29th. We invite artists interested in carving a woodblock of at least 24 by 36 inches to participate!

DEADLINE TO APPLY: JUNE 21, 2021
FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO APPLY, VISIT:
BIGINK.ORG


First, you submit a design for consideration. Either a previously created image or a new concept is acceptable. If selected, you'll have two months to carve a woodblock based on your submission. No prior printmaking experience is necessary. You'll learn the process through a combination of online and in-person instruction.

BIG INK will transform the Gallery at 3S Artspace into a print studio featuring The Big Tuna: our custom-designed giant mobile press. We'll invite the general public to witness the spectacle of you and other participants printing together.

BIG INK blends elements of a formal class and a maker fair. It's a fun way to expand your skill set, meet other artists, and engage with the public. Bring your next big idea to life while participating in a one-of-a-kind art making bonanza! We encourage all skill levels to apply.

Participation highlights include:

✔️ Online Master Class Access

✔️ Speedball Art Product Samples

✔️ Hands-on instruction during the event

✔️ Three impressions from your woodblock, all of which you get to keep
