Shelli Cohen Owner at Wood & Words


I have always been a creative person. When I was a teenager, I started painting wooden picture frames to give out as gifts. As an adult, I worked in the fashion industry in Toronto as a Hairstylist and Makeup Artist where I enjoyed expressing my creativity. I then moved to Edmonton where I began flipping houses. I really enjoyed the whole design process involved in renovating homes. After moving to Kelowna in 2015 I came across a sign making workshop and absolutely fell in love with the whole process of designing, creating and seeing my finished product. There is just something so satisfying about making beautiful things with my own hands. So, I decided to turn my creative passion into a small business and I’m loving every minute of it!

At Wood & Words home decor located in Kelowna, B.C., I am here to help you make your vision a reality. Whether you found a design on Pinterest that you absolutely love, or you have an idea in your head that you just need help getting out, that is what I am here for!! Choose from Custom Farmhouse, Rustic or Shabby Chic style signs for your home, office or to give away as a gift. With my handy, stencil cutting machine and some creativity, the sky is the limit!

Getting married or know someone who is? Custom wedding signage can be expensive, and then what do you do with the signs after? Try to sell them for less than you paid? Why not rent instead? Currently offering 2 different styles; Rustic and Shabby Chic. Each style has 12 different signs, 5 easels and 20 table numbers to choose from.

Want to learn how to create your own sign? Come out to a WOOD, WORDS & WINE Workshop and enjoy the process as I take you step by step from staining your boards, to the finished product. No artistic ability needed! Not only will you enjoy the experience, you will also leave with a beautiful sign that you will be proud to hang on your wall or give away as a gift.
