Summertime Sweep-stakes!

About this event

Summer is a perfect time to learn how to make your own one-of-a-kind piece of folk art, something you can use daily around your home and yard, and display for all to see.

Join Foothills broom-maker David Campbell as he teaches the centuries-old craft of making Hand-Woven Heritage Brooms, employing the same techniques used over 200 years ago. Floor brooms, hearth brooms, cobweb or tidy brooms, these sturdy heirloom sweepers are as attractive as they are practical, for use on floors, sidewalks, patios and decks, or simply for display as unique works of heritage folk art.

Broom-making courses are popular so please register early, and please bring your own refreshments and lunch. Some hand strength is required.

Audience: Adults, please. No experience required!

Supplies: All supplies included. Please bring your own lunch, water, and a face mask!

Registration cost: $140 + GST & Eventbrite Fees*

* Or register by phone: 403-931-3633, Mon-Fri, 10 am – 4 pm to avoid Eventbrite fees
