Joanna Schleimer is a hand weaver using fine, natural materials to create delicate, personal and nostalgic textiles.  Her studio work focuses on embedding imagery within cloth, exploring both additive and subtractive processes, both on and off the loom.  She is particularly interested in memories and feelings that are evoked from meaningful garments and heirloom objects. 

Joanna studied Material Art and Design at the Ontario College of Art and Design University, graduating in 2011.  Joanna maintains a studio practice in Hamilton.
