Block Printing With Traditional Indian Blocks



Using Maday's collection of carved Indian blocks we will create our marks on textiles with permanent textile ink. We will create personalized fabrics to use in future projects and learn techniques to share and explore. We will discuss printing on garments to give them a new life and add whimsy and visual interest. The possibilities are endless!

Instructor Bio:
Maday is a prolific art educator, published artist, and guild presenter based in the Midwest committed to bringing innovation and artistry to the forefront of the work she creates. Her mission is to nurture artistic platforms across cultures and generations to foster creative work while finding ways to minimize her environmental footprint.

Learning from cultural textile traditions and exchanging powerful stories, continues to be a source of inspiration that she hopes to share with all.

Her goal is to unify students with different skill sets and share her love of art and vibrant textiles. She combines painting, weaving, hand-stitching and machine sewing and embroidery to infuse her creations with energy and pay homage to her Cuban upbringing. She loves the art of collaging and storytelling with new and pre-loved textiles; Janome machines keep up with her big, scrappy ideas every step of the way.

Maday?s work has appeared in the international publication Uppercase magazine (2022, 2020) the book Quilted (2019), and periodicals in her home state. She also presented virtually to the design students at the Indian Institute of Art & Design in New Delhi, India in August 2020 and teaches at Folk Schools, Quilt Shops, and Quilt Shows. Let?s continue to learn together.
