Using traditional techniques, learn how to hand tie and stitch a flat whisk broom (a similar shape to a traditional wooden-handled sweeper but without the handle). We'll also cover how to add a woven reed handle to the whisk broom. Students will leave the class with a completed hand broom.
The skills taught in this class are different from those in the first Whisked Away class, but prior experience/participation isn't necessary. Students who do take both classes will be able to combine some of the skills to make different styles of brooms at home.
Skill level: Beginner
Supplies we'll provide: All materials, tools, and instruction
