Brooms, have been connected to the home since humans began to clean and clear their abodes. There are deities connected to them across very nearly all cultures. The making of brooms, and besoms, whisks and switches, have been ingrained into our history here on Turtle Island since the moment our ancestors stepped foot on its soil.
So, how do you ‘clean’ up a cobweb? With a cobwebbing broom of course! These beautiful, versatile brooms become and extension of our arms. They reach the areas that we cannot without the need to be stepping on stools or using a tall person to help, especially if you are short like me!
In this hands on crafting workshop, over 3ish hours, you will make a basic hand broom to get used to the tools and materials, and then we will move onto making your cobweb broom. You will also learn how to consecrate it, and then we will discuss the ways it can be used for house magicks with a focus on the Spring Equinox.
All supplies are included for you to craft your broom:
A beautifully finished stick for your handle.
Cord, many colours to choose from, for winding and weaving your broom.
And some notes.
You will need to bring a notebook and pen to take any additional notes while we discuss the magickal aspects of the class.
Space is limited to 10 people, so be sure to register early to avoid any disappointment. Cost: $110 via etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can pay cash at the shop. Please reference “Cobweb Broom Mystic Tree” in the notes of the etransfer
