Join local broom maker David Campbell for a one-day workshop in the centuries-old craft of handwoven broom making.
With Halloween around the corner now is the time to learn how to make a Hand-Woven Flying Broom, the same model used by witches and Harry Potter! These ornamental brooms make wonderful additions to your home and yard, and are excellent gifts for would-be witches out for treats on Halloween night.
If not a flying broom, how about a floor broom, hearth broom, cobweb, or tidy broom? All are sturdy heirloom sweepers that are as beautiful as they are practical, for use on floors, sidewalks, patios and decks, or simply for display as a rustic, one-of-a-kind conversation pieces.
These sturdy corn brooms, first popularized over 200 years ago, are truly "functional pieces of art".
The workshop start time is 10:00 am, with an expected end time of no later than 4:00 pm, or earlier. There will be a one-hour lunch break. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch and water.
Workshops are limited to five participants each. A degree of hand and arm strength is required.
