Make Your Own "Sweeping Beauty!"
Summer! A perfect time to learn how to make your own one-of-a-kind piece of folk art, something you can use daily around your home and yard, and display for all to see.
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 broom 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!).
The workshop start time is 10:00 am, with an expected end time of no later than 4:00 pm, or earlier. There will be a one-hour lunch break. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch and water. Tea and coffee will be available.
Workshops are limited to five participants each. A degree of hand and arm strength is required.
Audience: Adults & Teens please. No experience required!
Supplies: All supplies will be included.
