Broom Making Workshop
Want to learn traditional broom making? Attend a 2.5 hour workshop and learn this craft. You will learn the basics and weave one broom that will be cut into three brooms. Participants will learn the process of broom making and weave their own shaker combo broom. They will be able to make one broom through binding broom corn and then weaving broom stalks. That skill will be repeated three times and then the broom will be cut into three parts. There will be a cake tester, pot scrubber, and a hand broom. Cake testers were used to check the done-ness of a cake by removing one broom straw from the broom and inserting it into the cake. A pot scrubber is used on pots or cast iron to scrub away cooked on food. The hand broom is used to sweep away small messes. No experience necessary. Instructor: Eva Gaultney.
