About the Artist

Randy Grant resides in Columbia and is a well known member of Palmetto Woodturners. Randy does not just make coffee and deliver donuts for PWT meetings. He is a very accomplished woodturner and has presented several times over the past few years. He is well known for his love of burls and work to embellish turned pieces.

At the November meeting, Randy will share knowledge he gained at John C. Campbell Folk School, which he attended as a recipient of one of PWT's $600 scholorships last December. The class he attended was lead by well known turner Dixie Biggs and was entitled "Need Some Relief." Randy will demonstrate relief carving on turned objects, including the various stages of carving a leaf. The presentation will demonstrate the use of several different carving tools and techniques, including wood burning or pyrography.
