Brooms are an important and essential tool used all around the world for cleaning in both the physical and energetic realms. In this class we will cover the very basics of broom craft and get comfortable with the tools and techniques it takes to hand build a sturdy broom that will last a lifetime. Note that this workshop takes hand + arm strength. Each student will make two different styles of whisk brooms (turkey wing + woven alter whisk) to take home and use for our daily cleaning rituals. *

* Due to the length of this workshop students will be taking a lunch break. Please bring a bag lunch or there are also a number of walkable options in the neighborhood. 

Bethany (they/them) is a teacher and student of ancestral skills. For as long as they can remember they’ve turned to the trees and animals in the forest for council. Bethany believes strongly in the healing powers of nature, believing that strengthening our connection with the natural world can improve our interpersonal relationships and emotional wellbeing. Bethany has found that working the hands with elements of nature brings some of the deepest healing and feels like it is their path to help is their path to help bridge the gap between humans and nature, bringing to light how that relationship can help heal trauma. Bethany has worked with many different natural elements with a strong emphasis on different ways of processing skins (e.g making and using Brain-tan, Bark-tan, rawhide, and furs), earth pigments; and is a professional Broom Maker.
