Andy MacDougall | Wachiay Studio
Andy MacDougall is managing director of Wachiay Studio in Courtenay, B.C., where they specialize in screen printing art, textiles, and teaching the process to both Indigenous and non-indigenous artists and entrepreneurs of all ages. In 2007, he was inducted into the international Academy of Screen and Digital Printing (ASDPT) and was a member of the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) education committee who updated the most recent (2016) curriculum for high school and post-secondary based on current industry needs and applications (textile, graphic, and functional printing).
In addition to Wachiay Studio and since 2005, he developed live screen printing demonstration programs for the American Poster Institute (API) at Flatstock Rock Poster Shows in Seattle, Austin, Texas, Barcelona, and Mexico City, working with local printers and studios to build knowledge and activity, both cultural and economically. He provides specialized consulting, equipment sourcing, and training to screen printers around the globe, including small, one-person studios, universities, and commercial clients such as Nike, Facebook, and industrial clients doing in-plant decorating and printing. Recently, he was at the Advanced Materials lab at University of British Columbia installing their first screen printing press for research into printing on flexible electronics and textiles.
MacDougall is a regular columnist and feature writer for Screen Printing magazine, as well as contributing writer for Wearables, SignMedia, and publications in the UK, India, and Brazil. He is the author of “Screenprinting Today, the Basics,” and helped (along with daughter Naomi, a book designer) publish the definitive “A History of Screenprinting” by Swiss author and educator Guido Lengwiler.
