Broom Making Workshop: Dyed Turkey Wing

$70.00$75.00

Saturday, June 15, 2019
1pm-4pm
$75.

Adventures in Broom Making: The Dyed Turkey Wing

Take a Shaker-inspired broom making class right here at Shaker Village!  There’s no better place in the world to learn the craft of broom making.

Using both natural and pre-dyed brush and a foot tumbler, you will learn brush control, metering, the “V-up” and assembly techniques to create the delicately balanced turkey wing shape.  Participants will take home a completed broom and have the opportunity to purchase raw materials and tools to continue creating brooms at home.  A random selection of color broomcorn and binding thread choices will be available.

Your instructor is Brian Newton of Broomcorn Johnny’s in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Brian is a national prize-winning artist and member of the Early American Life Directory of Traditional American Crafts.  He is dedicated to creating high-quality, long-lasting and beautiful brooms for his customers and is a gem of an instructor who loves to share his craft and expansive knowledge with students of all levels.

No experience necessary. All supplies will be provided. Just bring a pen so you can check this off of your bucket list!
