Noelle Hamlyn


Holding credentials in Craft, Fine Art and Costuming, Noelle uses craft-practices to mediate embodied experience and memory. She blends the technical and conceptual - recognizing hands respond to their tacit subjective experience. Intrigued by textures, ideas, the world and being in it, she believes objects have the power to absorb time, conjure experience, and hold stories. Noelle’s work has represented Canada at the Cheongju International Craft Biennale, South Korea (2009), Love Lace International Lace Competition Power House Museum, Australia (2011-13?), and the Biennale Internationale du Lin de Portneuf – Deschambault, Quebec (20130. Her work is in permeant collections at the Cambridge Art Gallery, Peel Art Museum + Archives, the City of Mississauga, and Daniels Corporation. Accolades include Finalist in the 2017 and 2021 Salt Spring National Art Prize, Best in Show at TOAE (2014, 2019) and the Carnegie Craft Biennale, (2013).  Noelle’s practice has been supported by the Canada, Ontario, and Mississauga Arts Councils, and with residencies at the Banff Centre, Harbourfront Centre, Burren College of Art, Salt Spring Arts Council, Newfoundland Craft Council, and Barefoot College, Tanzania.
