Join STEAM fellow Lin Elkins for an Appalachian Broom & Brush Class. This class is for adults and runs from 12 – 5pm on November 13th.

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.
