Learn to make Shaker-inspired brooms right here at Shaker Village! There’s no better place in the world to learn the craft of broom making.

Level – Beginner: No experience needed, and this class provides a great introduction to broom making skills.

Create a kitchen set from scratch using natural broomcorn, tampico agave fiber, and nylon cord! You’ll learn the basic skills used in tying brooms to make your own unique tools. You’ll go home with a veggie brush, several pot scrubbers, and 2-3 dish brushes for your own kitchen or to give as handmade, heartfelt gifts.

Consider doing a double-header — register for the afternoon Turkey Wing Broom workshop the same day.

Your instructor is Robert Sheckler of Redmond Philbert Handwork, an enthusiastic learner, teacher, and crafter living and working in the Portland area. Beyond the visceral joy of broom-making, Robert is interested in elevating natural materials over synthetic alternatives and loves to incorporate color into his work, making an everyday object and an everyday activity feel special, vibrant, and even fun.
