BIG INK is hosting a weekend of monumental woodblock printing at Riverviews Artspace in Lynchburg, VA. We invite artists interested in carving a woodblock of at least 24 by 36 inches to print with us!

First, artists must submit a design for consideration by August 3rd. Those selected will have two months to carve a woodblock based on their submission. We then meet at Riverviews and help each other print on BIG INK’s giant mobile printing press, The Big Tuna.

It’s free to submit; accepted applicants pay $300. Participation includes the following benefits:

✔️ Access to our online woodblock carving master class
✔️ Hands-on instruction during the event
✔️ High-resolution scan of the finished work
✔️ Ink and paper samples from Speedball Art Products

We print three impressions from each participant’s woodblock. Two remain property of the artist, and the third goes in BIG INK’s collection. Over 300 large-scale woodblock prints, created by past participants, are available for purchase in our online shop. Sale proceeds are split equally between BIG INK and the participant. We also utilize the collection for exhibitions, artist talks, and college presentations.

No prior carving experience is necessary, and artists of all skill levels are encouraged to apply. Bring your next big idea to life and participate in our one-of-a-kind printmaking bonanza!
