Turkey Wing Whisk Broom
Workshop Fee: $110.00
Prior to the Industrial Revolution, most households had a variety of floor brooms, small brooms, and brushes, all for very specific uses. These were mainly made of broomcorn, a type of sorghum. In this workshop we’ll assemble a variety of small brooms. Starting with simple “bundle whisk brooms,” we’ll learn about knots and broom materials, as well as gain the skills necessary to master the “tumble spool.” As the day progresses we’ll tackle slightly more complex designs until we finish the workshop with a decorative (but still functional) Turkey Wing design. All workshops run from 9AM- 5PM with an hour for lunch in the middle of the day.
Materials Fee: $15-$25 Paid at the time of workshop.
