Open Studio Night is an opportunity for our local print community to access equipment and tools available at our professional screenprint shop. Wachiay Studio will provide the basic necessities to print with (specialized and/or large quantities of ink must be purchased and stock must be pre-ordered). Book by the hour and run small production runs on paper, textiles, or other materials. Make film, clean and burn screens, and create products using our presses and dryer.


We welcome individuals who have gone through our Introduction to Screenprinting program and/or have demonstrated their ability to understand and carry out the safe and efficient operation of the equipment in the studio.
