Brooms are often one of the most overlooked--but essential--tools in the colonial household. Broom making allows us to turn simple, natural materials into objects of usefulness and beauty.  In this class we will use broomcorn to craft a small whisk broom with a short wooden handle (the broom pictured is a larger one made by one of our staff for use in the house). Some hand strength is required as the cord needs to be pulled quite tight.

Cost is $30 for members; $35 for non-members. Ages 12 and older; limit 10 participants. No prior experience necessary.

This workshop will be held at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation, rain or shine. Please use GPS address 3900 North Sandy Flash Drive, Newtown Square, PA 19073. Our staff will meet you in the parking lot and walk the group up to the workshop space.

Please let us know about any mobility concerns.
