In this 3 hour workshop, Bethany College's Swedish Crafts instructor Justin Burton will school us in the timeworn arts of broom making. Not your average lowly pantry utensils, these brooms are not only meant to be practical but also works of folk art that will have a proud place on your wall or in your entryway. In this morning class, you will create two hand-held whisk brooms. Participants will wind the broom with stick and string using natural broomcorn.

Cost: $90/person
