Winter Wonders Artisan Profile - Shannon Welch

Another one of our faves is back for the Winter Wonders Market - Shannon Welch!

Shannon Welch took up silversmithing twelve years ago in Victoria, BC. Since then she has had the opportunity to hone her skills at the Revere Academy in San Francisco, the Neil Balkwill Centre in Regina and through mentorship grants with the Saskatchewan Craft Council and CARFAC. In 2011, her work was awarded “Excellence in Metalwork” in the Dimensions craft council show which tours the province.

In her spare time she is a full-time high school teacher, mother of two kids (Nadeige and Torin) and two dogs (Pudding and Maple), and partner of Jean-Francois, who is very patient, as well as supportive of her creative pursuits.
