Learn how to make your own Hand-Woven Heritage Broom, the way brooms were made over 200 years ago!
Whether a floor broom, hearth broom, cobweb, or tidy broom, these one-of-a-kind “sweeping beauties” are as beautiful as they are practical, for use on floors, sidewalks, decks, patios, or simply for display as pieces of centuries-old folk art.
Join Foothills broom-maker David Campbell for six hours of hands-on instruction after which you’ll have made a woven broom that is as much a unique conversation piece as it is a fully functional sweeper – one that you made yourself!
Broom-making courses are popular so please register early, and please bring your own refreshments and lunch. Some hand strength is required.
Audience: Adults, please. No experience required!
Supplies: All supplies included. Please bring your own lunch and water. Face masks are optional.
Registration cost: $155.84
