The Art of Broom Making

April 11, 2019 – April 14, 2019

Mark Hendry

The focus of this workshop is learning the traditional Appalachian art of making brooms from the ground up. Students will prep broomcorn, learn to harvest and finish handles, and construct a variety of broom styles including whisks, sweepers and besoms, each as functional as they are fanciful. Participants will explore the art of broom design and leave class with all the know-how to make brooms on their own. Open to all skill levels, however moderate hand and upper body strength are needed.





COURSE FEE: $450
