Thomas Iksiraq is an experienced artist, printer and the committed Director of the Baker Lake Printers Cooperative in Nunavut. Baker Lake has a rich history of Printmaking. Originally established in 1970 with the assistance of renowned artist and educator Sheila Butler, the Baker Lake print workshop produced highly acclaimed art for the following decade. However, it declined in activity and was eventually shut down. Last year, Toronto-based Sheila Butler became involved as an unpaid mentor in the cooperative’s renewal and oversaw the revival of the print cooperative. This is an exciting opportunity to increase knowledge of the history of printmaking within the Baker Lake Community.
