Hybrid (Live) Online and In Person, January 6th 2024 4:30-7PM, A Witch's Kitchen Sweeper Broom Workshop - w/ The House of Twigs Workshop
By request, we are working on a kitchen broom for this digital and i -person hybrid class. These are functional brooms for the home and magickal workings. We will go over some of the magickal ways to use a broom, and then we will make one in-person, with one-on-one help from your instructor and head witch, Erika of Queen Meb.

Our Broom Making Story:
One of my (Erika’s) ancestors is a Lenape indigenous woman who was known to travel around, sell brooms, linens, tell fortunes, and heal people with herbs. This is something that has been on repeat in the back of my mind.
I have struggled to get brooms in when the demand is up at the store and I have chosen to honor my ancestors by creating a series of brooms in my own design inspired by my multi-influenced heritage. I am offering this as a personal broom creation lesson and not something intended to train others how to be a competitor. Please respect the knowledge and the craftsperson.
