Making your own broom is a unique and very satisfying experience! The Witchery offers group and private broom making workshops every hour by appointment. They are currently held outdoors (weather permitting),
Once you arrive, you will first select your handle. Our handles are made from sturdy ash branches. The ash tree is considered sacred by many cultures. We have 3 size handles to choose from: Small (12 inch handle), Medium (21 inch handle), Large (42 inch handle).
Next you will choose the broomcorn. Our broomcorn comes from the sorghum plant, and is excellent for broom making. We have natural, red and black broomcorn to choose from. Some are cut, and others kept as long stalks.
Some folks keep their brooms rustic and simple. Others like to customize their brooms even further. You can purchase extra embellishments such as dried flowers, pendants, charms, buckles, crystals, gemstones, bones, lace, leather & more.
Once you've gathered your materials, we will show you how to wrap your broomcorn around the handle, weave in some decorative twine (if desired) and add any extra items you might have.
There is a $10 instruction fee per person, and this is needed to reserve your spot. You can pay for your broom materials once you arrive. Brooms include the handle, broomcorn, twine, a color splash bundle, and your choice of charm. The cost is as follows:
Hope to see you here!
If it raims we will notify you by text to let you know of any cancellations, if you still want to make a broom, stop in and gather your materials to take and make at home or in your hotel room using our online video tutorial. We will deduct the instruction fee, taking $10 off your purchase. We love that option- it's a great way to support our small business during these challenging times. However if you would rather a refund, please lets know.
IF you are booking outside of October, yes! You can make one broom together. During October, however, everyone must be making their own broom. Space is limited. Thank you for understanding.
If you plan on receiving instruction, you will need to pay the instruction fee of $10 plus the cost of your broom making materials. If you are on a tight budget, you can always take your broom to go and use our online video tutorial.
