with Poliana Danila
Saturday, April 24 (rain date Sunday, April 25)
11am – 3pm
One meeting, in person
Glebe House Outdoor Garden, 635 Main Street
We will make a 16-inch broom using an ancient technique and an ancient plant: corn. This broom is an extraordinarily effective sweeper, and a beautiful art piece for the wall. You will be able to choose from natural and black-dyed broom corn, and you will choose the color of the cord. Tools will be provided for your use during class. At the end of the class, you will leave with a beautiful broom.
