BIG INK is a traveling educational program that teaches visual art and brings people together to celebrate woodblock printmaking. We empower artists with the tools and techniques needed to carve a large-scale woodblock. Our public events highlight the spectacle of the printing process.
Artists interested in carving a woodblock of at least 24 by 36 inches are invited to apply to print with BIG INK. No prior experience is required and emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists are encouraged to apply. Upon acceptance, artists have two months to carve their design. We then meet at a venue and help each other print as a group.
BIG INK creates three impressions from each participant's woodblock during these meetups, one of which the artist places in BIG INK's collection. These works are available for purchase after being scanned and cataloged on our website. The collection is used for exhibitions, artist talks, and college presentations.
