Broom Making

with David Campbell

July 31, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Price: $155.84

Summer! Finally! 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 Foothills broom-maker David Campbell as he leads you in the centuries-old craft of making Hand-Woven Heritage Brooms, employing the same techniques that were in use over 200 years ago. Floor brooms, hearth brooms, display brooms or flying brooms, these sturdy heirloom sweepers are as attractive as they are practical, for use on floors, sidewalks, patios and decks, or simply for display as unique works of heritage folk art.

Broom-making courses are popular so please register early. Bring your own refreshments and lunch. All materials and tools provided. Some hand strength is required.

Audience: No experience required. Children 12 years or older are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

Supplies: All supplies included. Please bring your own lunch and water. Face masks are optional.

Registration cost: $155.84
