Spring Broom Making

with David Campbell

June 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Price: $140

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, water, and a face mask!

Registration cost: $140 + GST & Eventbrite Fees*

* Or register by phone: 403-931-3633, Mon-Fri, 10 am – 4 pm to avoid Eventbrite fees
