About Handler Woodcraft
Heather has always been handy and interested in art. While getting her Biology degree she took private art classes. She began teaching Biology in 2006 but continued to paint in her spare time. In 2017 she began to paint directly onto raw wood with acrylic paint. She also got a new job teaching High School Design and Engineering. It was there in early 2019 that Heather was introduced to woodturning. The First State Woodturners offered to teach her students one on one while also teaching Heather. She was thrilled! Heather is a current American Association of Woodturners member, a Women in Turning member and the WIT representative for the First State Woodturners. She learns new skills every day and is in constant contact with her woodturning club. Heather sees opportunity in every piece of wood. She loves the connection with nature that woodturning brings.
