Stacey Williams, Tlingit Weaver @ Sheldon Jackson Museum | Sitka | Alaska | United States

Visit the demonstrating artist, Stacey Williams while she is demonstrating weaving at the Sheldon Jackson Museum.

Stacey Williams is a Tlingit native born into the raven side of the Tleeiweidi under the Dogsalmon clan. She was raised in Ketchikan, AK where she continues to practice her arts and teaching.

As a student under Holly Churchill, Dorica Jackson, Diane Douglas-Willard, and many other talented weavers, she has worked hard to study multiple disciplines of weaving including cedar bark, spruce root and textiles.

As an instructor, she instills hope in each of her students that the arts will go on. She inspires many to delve deeper into her love that is Northwest coast weaving. As an educator, she works to maintain the delicate balance of traditional knowledge and contemporary growth of the culture. Her baskets and pieces can be seen on display in the Ketchikan Museums collection as well as Crazy Wolf studios and in private collections.

During her artist residency, Tracey will teach a Cedar Bark Basket Class.
