Demoing Thursday - Sunday: Traditional Broom Making
Mini-Course: Craft a Whisk
In this course, we will cover the basics of broom making by exploring small whisk brooms. Starting with raw broomcorn and string and using a foot bobbin, each student will learn how to layer broomcorn together to create an attractive whisk broom that will be useful for cleaning out the car, brushing snow from winter clothes, cleaning up ash and wood bits around the wood stove, and so much more!
