About your host

I'm a Mexican textile artist who studied fashion design and fiber arts, I started learning Mexican textiles all around the country six years ago, It was in Oaxaca where I fell in love with the vibrant hues of ancient textiles. Since then I have developed several projects including a brand of artisanal backpacks using some of the materials and methods we will cover in this workshop.
