William Callaghan

Teslin Tlingit
 

William Callaghan comes from Teslin, Yukon, where he has exhibited an interest in Native art and traditions since childhood.  William is a member of the Daklaweidi clan of Teslin Tlingit First Nation and has been carving since his late teens and has already reached a superior level of craftsmanship as a wood carving artist.  He is also a member of a traditional dance group and has gone on tour to share the stories of his culture.

Callaghan has been developing his carving skills through the Sun Dog Retreat Carving Program.  He completed the beginner course and is currently in the advanced program.  His last instructor in the advanced program was Vernon Asp, an artist, who, himself, trained at the renowned K'san School in Hazelton, BC.  In addition to his studies at Sun Dog Retreat, William has worked as an apprentice with fellow Tlingit artists Eugene Alfred and Keith W. Smarch.  He enjoys making masks, paddles, combs, panels and plaques.

William has beeninvolved in tutoring other new carvers.  He is an up and coming artist who is interested in sharing his knowledge and skills with fellow members of the new generation.
