Chestnut Oak Fibers
Pam learn to weave from her Mother on a Rigid Heddle Loom when she was a child. That was in 1967 and Pam has not stopped weaving since. Pam likes to work with color, texture and structure creating beautiful hand-woven scarves, shawls and fabric. She also enjoy passing on her knowledge by teaching weaving at schools, conferences and guilds.
Today, careful planning and fine materials go into each one of Pam Howard's fiber creations. She uses only the finest materials consisting of silk, wool, cotton, rayon, bamboo and blends. Some of her creations are hand dyed and some natural dyed using local plants from our Appalachian Mountain area. Pam's love of weaving reflects in every piece she creates. Pam is the Weaving Resident for the John C Campbell Folk School, a member of the Southern Highland Handicraft Guild and the Nonah Weavers. Her unique creations indicate the beauty and peace of her surroundings in her woodland studios in Brasstown, North Carolina.
