This summer I attended Squeegeerama. A week-long screenprint workshop in the Comox Valley at Wachiay Studio.
Bobby C. Martin was the guest screenprinter, and other artists were Max White (UWW), Klehwetua Rodney Sayers, and Emily Luce.
Emily and I worked on a 5 hour collaboration that we dubbed the Punk Print Posse.
What goes on in the print studios on campus?
If you’re a local you may sneak a peek into the windows as you walk from one part of the campus to the other. Here is a little of the magic that happens in the screenprint (serigraph) studio.
Printmaking is a technical process and the students are learning not only the technical aspects of the process, but also how to solve problems when they encounter a challenge.
Most of the day was spent in the studio pulling prints.
Learning the collagraph process involves making several test plates. The following three were printed from a test plate made from combed gesso.
