Craft a Sweeper Broom Class

August 25 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join Emileigh of Rhythm & Ritual for a day of broomcraft and connection.
More than a handcrafts class, Emileigh creates a ritual space for participants to settle in and create with intention.

Everyone will make their own full length sweeper broom.
Participants will have an opportunity to use a drawknife and shaving horse to create a unique handle and learn how to tie the broom, stitch them flat, and plait a beautifully woven cap.

Due to the strenuous nature of this craft, I ask that all participants have moderate hand/upper body strength.

We will also actively be using our feet.

This is an intermediate class. Ideally you have some broommaking experience, but I am open to attendees that have general experience in crafting/handwork.
