Faculty: Julia Lee
Julia Lee is a graduate of the 1994-2000 OHS Spinning Certificate Program offered at the Haliburton School of Art + Design and is a course coordinator for the 2014-2020 OHS Spinning Certificate Program. She runs her own custom spinning business in Toronto: Provenance Yarns and Textiles. When designing her wearable textiles, Julia interprets a visual image, or sometimes a sentiment, to create a garment that will bring pleasure to the wearer and the viewer. Colour, texture, source, and functionality are primary motivations when creating yarns and fabric. She likes her pieces to be noticed, while still being practical and durable. When not spinning and knitting, Julia is a writer, runner, singer, and arts administrator.
