Sold Out! Autumn Broom Making

With David Campbell

October 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Price: $140

With Halloween around the corner, now is the time to learn how to make a Hand-Woven Flying Broom, the same model used by witches and Harry Potter! These beautiful ornamental brooms make wonderful additions to your home or yard and are excellent gifts for would-be witches looking for treats on Halloween.

If not a flying broom, how about a floor broom, hearth broom, cobweb, or tidy broom? All are sturdy heirloom sweepers that are as beautiful as they are practical, for use on floors, sidewalks, patios and decks, or simply for display as one-of-a-kind works of folk art.

Join Hand-Woven Heritage Broom-Maker David Campbell as he teaches the little-known craft of broom-making, employing the same techniques first used over two centuries ago.
