Dixie Biggs lives in Gainesville, Florida and has been a studio woodturner/artist since 1989. Having a degree in Agriculture and a love of the outdoors, much of her work incorporates a botanical theme. She is best known for her meticulously-carved “leaf-wrapped” vessel.
Dixie has demonstrated and taught her techniques at regional and national woodturning symposiums, woodturning clubs and craft schools around the U.S. and abroad.
We will be using rotary power carvers for this all day hands-on session. I will take you, step by step, through the process I use to create my “leaf wrapped” vessels. I will go over why I prefer a micro-motor for what I do, what burrs I use for each step and how and what uses I have for the burrs I modify. You don’t need any previous experience with power carving, just a desire to learn the techniques.
