I believe that Peace is always in season.  Peace is also Patriotic.  Representations of Freedom, and Liberty are appropriate year round as these are the cornerstones of our nation.

You can honor your own peace with any of these four imaginative, mixed media, fiber art works in your home. I have created this body of work as positive expressions of my own personal love of freedom and independence.  My mixed media weavings are skillfully woven on looms incorporating unexpected materials in to each one. Unique, hand woven works of art are designed and created by me, Pamela Palma, in my studio at the Bakehouse Art Complex, Miami. Make an appointment to see the work or  buy online now with free shipping.

July 4, 2017:  Cutler Bay held its 50th Annual 4th of July Celebration in Whispering Pines Park. I was commissioned to lead an interactive weaving workshop for kids and families. Let me just say, kids love to weave! Most had never tried it before and were very eager to use their hands creatively. They were great! They didn’t know it but they used creative problem solving, spatial relationships, color harmonies, sequential thinking, and more. They just knew they were having fun, making something colorful and textural, with their hands. No fidget spinners needed. Girls and boys of all ages and abilities participated. Look at these proud faces!
