Broom making is a unique and very satisfying craft. Learn how to make a custom broom from scratch, and leave Salem with a memorable, hands-on experience!
Choose an ash or finished hickory broom handle. Our handles come in small, medium and large.
Every broom starts with natural broomcorn. We have cut broomcorn for smalls and mediums, and long-stalk broomcorn for large brooms.
All brooms include a color splash bundle to make your broom pop! We usually have red, & black, and sometimes a rainbow of other colors to choose from.
Brooms also include a pendant or charm. Keep it rustic and simple, or customize your broom even further by purchasing add-ons, such as dried flowers, extra pendants & charms, bones, crystals, lace, leather & more.
Finally, come on over to our broom maker's station for some instruction and guidance by our knowledgeable staff. Hope to see you here!
Please note that broom making is for teens and adults Only. It is not appropriate for children as it involves upper body strength and developed motor skills. If you have a young child, consider bringing them in to select their own “broom decorating” kit. Please call / text us to set up an appointment to pick up a kit to go!
$50 (plus sales tax) is required to hold your spot for all workshops. This is your initial payment, and $50 will be deducted from the cost of your broom when finished. (For instance, if you make a small broom, the cost is $59, so you will only owe $9 (plus any extra items you purchase). We do not store your credit card. Your balance is due at the end of your session.
No. Because our shop is small, you can only stay if you are making a broom. If your friend/family doesn't want to make a broom, we suggest they check out the many shops and restaurants on Pickering Wharf while you craft. The one exception is if you are the only one signed up for the class, then they are welcome to stay and watch. Thank you so much for understanding!
Everyone sitting at the table must make their own broom, and be able to craft independently. The one exception is if you are making a wedding broom. If you are getting married and would like to make a wedding broom, congratulations! and please let us know ahead of time. Thank you!
A finished hickory or unfinished ash handle, natural broomcorn, twine, pendant/charm, extra color splash bundle to make your broom pop, and an hour of instruction by our knowledgeable staff. Other accessories available for purchase.
It usually takes 5 or 10 minutes to select your materials- unless of course you are a Libra. Then it might take longer. It takes about 30 minutes of instruction and guidance to actually make your broom- unless of course you are a Virgo. Then it might take longer. ;) Workshops are one hour in length.
Workshops run most days at 1pm, 2:30pm and 4:00pm- with extra times in October.
You can purchase a broom kit to go by using our online store, or by texting us for a visit.
When assembled, the average broom sizes are: small = 21", medium = 33", large = 55-60". It's best to check with your airline to see if they will let you on with your broom. If not, there is a UPS store close by, and the post office isn't too far as well. The Witchery doesn't ship brooms once they are made. We do, however, ship broom kits to go!
If you are running more than 5 minutes late, please note we may not be able to start over for you. We often have a waitlist and people are eager to take your seat! Thank you for understanding.
