It’s that time of year again, when we busy ourselves with holiday plans and gift- giving. Hand-woven heritage brooms make wonderful gifts, whether a floor broom, hearth broom, cobweb, or whisk broom. These “sweeping beauties” are as beautiful as they are practical, for use on floors, sidewalks, decks, patios, or simply for display as unique pieces of centuries-old folk art.
Join Broom-Maker David Campbell for six hours of hands-on instruction, employing the same techniques first used over 200 years ago. Afterwards you’ll have a broom that will be a one-of-a-kind conversation piece and a fully functional sweeper – a unique gift that you made yourself!
