Broom making is a unique and very satisfying craft. Learn how to make your own broom from scratch, and leave Salem with a memorable, hands-on experience! Workshops run most days from 1-5.
Choose an ash or hickory broom handle. We have 3 sizes: small-14 inch handle, medium- 21 inch handle, large- 42 inch handle.
Select the right size bundle of natural broomcorn for your project. 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! Colors are hand-dyed and are always changing.
Brooms also include a pendant or charm. Keep it rustic and simple or customize your broom even further by purchasing 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!
Broom making is geared towards teens and adults. It involves upper body strength and developed motor skills. It is important that everyone can craft independently.
$10 is required to hold your spot for all workshops. Add the price of your broom when finished crafting.
Workshops run most days from 1:00 to 5pm.
Broom kits to go are by appointment- and based on available supplies. Text us when you are in town and we can give you an update. We won't know ahead of time if we will have supplies for a later date- things change day to day. :)
Everyone seated at our table must make their own broom. Our workshop is very small. Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
A finished hickory or unfinished ash broom handle, broomcorn, twine, pendant/charm, extra color splash bundle to make your broom pop, and 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 may 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 may take longer :). Allow yourselves 45 minutes just in case.
We do start right on the hour! If you are late, we can't start over, and might give your spot away to someone who is waiting to craft. We might be able to fit you in to another session, but there are no guarantees. Please text us to let us know if you are late- especially in October. Thank for understanding.
There are no refunds for late cancellations and "no-shows".
