Appalachian Broom and Brush class (18+)

Join STEAM fellow Lin Elkins for an Appalachian Broom & Brush Class. This class is for adults and runs from 12 – 5pm on November 13th. The class costs $75pp (all materials included) and financial aid is available. To book your place, email skillset@unca.edu. For financial aid, email celkins@unca.edu

This introduction will give you all of the skills you need to design and tie your own brooms as well as carve and assemble a wooden brush from scratch! In this class we will cover traditional Appalachian broom forms like the turkey wing, pot scrubber, cake tester, and a classic whisk broom as well as a crumb brush. The class comes with a series of handouts to direct you to the best material sources and assembly techniques and you will walk away with a broom and brush of your own.
