Appalachian Broom Making
Date: Sunday, Feb 2 - Saturday, Feb 8, 2020
Subject: Broom Making
Instructor: Marlow Gates
Share:

The lowly broom was a staple of every Appalachian household. Work alongside an Appalachian master broom maker who has helped to raise the profile of this simple object. Explore the traditional craft, starting with a basic cobwebber, as well as the emerging art of brooms. Whisk, hearth, full-sized sweeper, and double broom designs will be taught, along with broom cultural history, legend, and lore. All levels welcome, but moderate manual dexterity and upper-body strength are needed. This class is featured in our "Passing On Appalachian Traditions" series, and is designed to connect highly skilled Appalachian craft instructors with present-day students. Instruction includes historical and cultural relevance, in addition to helping students understand, recognize, and practice traditional Appalachian skills and techniques.

Tuition: $630.00
