Intro to Broom Making

May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$50 – $60


Join us at Marble Springs on May 15th from 12 to 3pm for a very special Broom Making workshop! Students will make a primitive cobweb broom in the traditional style. This lightweight narrow broom is great for reaching all the places cobwebs can be found- Great for sweeping the ceiling too. These brooms are functional but make great decorative items and great gifts! In this workshop, we will learn the basic weaving techniques used to make a broom, with natural broomcorn (sorghum) No experience is required for this project. Everyone will go home with at least one completed cobweb broom (most make two).
Ticketing is limited so be sure to order through Eventbrite to save your spot. Ticket pricing is $50 for Members and $60 for Nonmembers.
