Join us for our 5th annual Squeegeerama: a week-long printing experience unlike any other. This five day workshop is for you if you have some experience with screen printing and want to up your game, meet other printers, and have fun the beautiful Comox Valley.
This year’s guest artist is Dan Stiles, a Portland-based artist and designer known worldwide for his rock posters. Dan will be demonstrating the creation of an electrified poster using printed circuits, electroluminescent materials, and other gizmos not usually associated with printing. As a participant, you will get a close-up look at how it’s done while working on your own print projects.
Over the course of a week, create, experiment, collaborate, and print with plenty of screens, lots of equipment and tables, and our friendly and experienced Wachiay Studio staff ready to help you with your project.
As a bonus, come visit us in one of the most gorgeous places on earth with mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers, and friendly small towns all around. Bring your family: you print, they play!
This price includes use of studio equipment, screens, inks, and membership to Screen the World, our online learning resource. Please note: garments and rag paper are not provided. Transportation and accommodation are not included, but we will happily help you find both.
We acknowledge with respect and gratitude the K’ómoks and Pentlach First Nations, including Sathloot, Sasitla, leeksun, Puntledge, Cha’chae, and Tat’poos, the traditional keepers of this land, on whose unceded territory we work, create, make, and reside.
