Broom Making II class near

Rouse has more than 40 years of experience making brooms of all shapes and sizes and loves passing on the skill he learned from his grandfather. This time he will teach participants how to make a turkey wing whisk broom that is especially handy for sweeping out corners and tight spaces and originated as a broom to sweep the ashes out of the back corners of the hearth.
