14 Dec Shannon Pritchard
Shannon is a maker, one whose hands have always grasped for materials which could be transformed in her hands. Her path with fiber work began as a child, with knitting which led to spinning and weaving. She has been teaching these gifts for the last ten years. Her path with bee tending began eight years ago at the Evergreen State College, and continued with her befriendment of Benjamin Pixie and involvement in The Pixie Traveling Medicine Show, which tours the west sharing stories and gifts of the magnificent honeybee. She is also a wood whisperer – spending most days working in a woodshop in the Pacific Northwest, and a typewriter poet.
