CALL TO ARTISTS
CARVE YOUR LARGE-SCALE WOODBLOCK AND PRINT WITH BIG INK AT ARTSPACE

Woodblock Print examples found here.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: JULY 26TH, 2021
FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO APPLY, VISIT:
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 take over the [Artspace] print studio and we’ll invite* the general public to witness the spectacle of you and other participants printing together. The event 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 Products Samples
✔️ Hands-on instruction during the event
✔️ Three impressions from your woodblock, all of which you get to keep
