SQUEEGEERAMA: August 20-22

Friday, Saturday and Sunday | August 20-21-22
Wachiay Studio on Vancouver Island

Squeegeerama is an annual squeegee-fest held at Wachiay Studio. We invite guest artists, to share their ideas and techniques. The studio and staff assist participants to print their projects on a variety of materials (paper, stencil, film, ink, etc supplied), and people are essentially turned loose to create in a fun environment, with other screenprinters and staff to answer questions, conduct demos, and explore new processes and equipment. To get the most out of the experience, you should have a working knowledge of the process, and be ready with your artwork prepped or close to it.

The cost for the 3 days, excluding shirts or specialized paper, is $400 **This is a special price for STW grads**
This includes a first night BBQ and membership in screentheworld.org

This year we will be linking up with a number of screenshops that teach around the world, and have zoom chats, and share the latest cool project details, the idea is to pick a date next year in 2022 and conduct Squeegeeramas simultaneously in different locations. It’s pretty cool, the other shops (Montreal, Greece, South Africa, Holland, Rome, Barcelona, Bogota so far ) are enthusiastic and a year ahead it will give us time to organize better, find sponsors, and people make travel arrangements. We just wanted to do it this summer to get started again, but from what we learned about zoom, etc this past year, we think we could have a lot of fun in different locations around the globe linking printers.

Feature artists this year are Emily Luce and Rodney Sayers. We have spots for 5 additional participants.
FYI or to sign up, contact studio@wachiay.org with Squeegeerama in the subject line.
Due to travel restrictions at this time, it’s only open to people in Canada. new for this year, we are inviting other studios around the world to link with us. If it goes well, we will have Squeegeerama events happening simultaneously in shops around the world.
