Brooms are an important and essential tool used all around the world for cleaning in both the physical and energetic realms. In this INTERMEDIATE (broom making experience is recommended but not mandatory and note that this workshop takes hand + arm strength) 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. Each student will make two different styles of brooms to take home - a woven whisk + cob web sweeper - 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 is a teacher and student of ancestral skills. For as long as she can remember she has turned to the trees and animals in the forest for council. She believes strongly in the healing powers of nature, believing that strengthening our connection with the natural world can improve our interpersonal relationships and emotional well being. In her own path she has found that working with her hands with elements of nature brings her and others some of the deepest healing. She feels like it is her path to do what she can to help bridge the gap between humans and nature and bring 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 most recently has fallen in love with broom making.
