Events Description

Make Your Own “Sweeping Beauty!”

Join local broom maker David Campbell for a one-day workshop in the centuries-old craft of handwoven broom making.

Participants are provided with all of the materials, tools, and instruction needed to make their own broom from start to finish, whether a floor broom, hearth or cobweb broom, or even a “flying” ornamental broom.

These sturdy corn brooms, first popularized over 200 years ago, are truly “functional pieces of art” that may be displayed in your home while being used on a daily basis, inside or outside (floor brooms are great for patios and decks!).

Workshops are limited to five participants each. A degree of hand and arm strength is required.

Audience: Adults, please. No experience required!

Supplies: All supplies will be supplied. Please bring your own lunch and water.
