We are so excited to be welcoming BIG INK to the Pajama Factory the first weekend in October!
Their mission is to inspire a greater public appreciation for large-scale woodblock printmaking and to extend its practice as an artistic discipline.
For some background: Lyell Castonguay and Carand Burnet founded BIG INK in 2012. Castonguay, whose personal woodblocks are often monumental, wanted to encourage other printmakers to expand their sense of scale. Recognizing most artists don’t have the technical expertise required for such work, Castonguay began to teach the woodblock carving process. By hosting informal “print parties,” word spread and more artists wanted to learn the craft. Castonguay established BIG INK to accomodate the growing interest.
