Community Class

Delve into a new creative skill with your fellow community members and WonderArts! These classes are fun for all levels and encourage creative exploration in a positive learning environment.

Whisk Brooms

Drawing on traditional Shaker techniques and using broom corn and twine, the class will start with the bunch broom first and finish it off with a plaited handle to create the whisk broom. A great project for beginners, these techniques can be expanded upon to make more complex brooms! Note: participants should have adequate hand/wrist strength and the ability to grasp firmly and hold tension in the line for an hour+. Led by Mary Kathrine Watkevich

All materials are included!
Ages 15 and up
