Bill Jaeger

Bill Jaeger is a figure carver in the traditional Swedish-Norwegian style. His interest in wood carving led him to carving classes at the Sätergläntan folk school in Sweden. He has been teaching carving at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis since 2002. Bill’s theory of teaching is to learn the history, understand the technique, and create a hobby for life. He earned his Vesterheim Gold Medal in 2009.
