Embroidery is not only a way of expressing creativity and hand-eye coordination; it also has a universe of meanings about care, love, and empathy.

In this workshop, participants will acquire knowledge of the basics of embroidery techniques and become interested in collective embroidery as a way to tell their own stories, and narrate their self-identification.

Claudia Cano is a multidisciplinary artist with broad experience in teaching children and adults a very diverse list of art subjects, including photography, printmaking, drawing, painting, and performance. After obtaining a degree in Communication Sciences at the Technological Institute of Monterrey (1988), Cano studied photography at the University of Wisconsin—Stout. In 1997, she studied Advertising at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico, where she subsequently taught photography courses for several years. While teaching at the university, Claudia developed a curriculum of study in photography as an extension program. The certificate program has helped hundreds of students gain a solid understanding of the aesthetic and technical aspects that are critical to the discipline of photography over the last twenty years.

Cano left Mexico in 2002 to reside in San Diego, California. In 2014, Cano earned a Certificate of Museum Studies from San Diego Community College while working her way up in the museum industry. In 2017, she obtained her Master of Fine Arts from San Diego State University, where she studied painting and printmaking. Also, she has developed a growing and evolving practice in performance art. During the past twenty-five years, Cano has shown her art at various organizations and museums in California, Germany, and Mexico. For the past few years, she has lectured and taught courses in photography and art-making in the schools and museums of San Diego and Tijuana. Cano has been published in various catalogs and art magazines.
