Join Fine Woodworking in Tampa this February

Come experience the joy of personalized instruction at the Florida School of Woodwork with master classes taught by some of the best-known names in craft, like Peter Galbert, Michael Fortune, and Mary May. Taking place in a revitalized section of the city, HANDS ON will be a great weekend of in-depth learning, discovering new skills and techniques, and connecting with others who share a passion for woodworking.

We've planned an exciting program, with a special class by Dixie Biggs, where students can learn her secrets to creative relief carving. AAW members are likely familiar with Dixie. She has shown her work in such notable venues as the Smithsonian Craft Show, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, and del Mano Gallery. Her turned works begin on the lathe, but that is just a starting point—the turned blank becomes the canvas on which she then carves and paints the intricate detail for which her work is known. Dixie has demonstrated and taught her power carving techniques at regional and national woodturning symposiums, woodturning clubs and craft schools around the U.S. and abroad. She has been an active supporter of the American Association of Woodturners’ committee, Women in Turning, which is dedicated to encouraging and assisting women turners.
