June 19th- Bush broom making workshop

Repetition is never boring when you are making something by hand. Join us for a day of bush broom making!

When: Saturday June 19th, 10am-2pm

Where: Jackeys Marsh

Host: Jas

Cost: $160pp

What to bring:

  • Refreshments and a light snack will be provided. Please bring lunch if you need and a water bottle.

Please wear comfortable, warm clothes that you don’t mind getting messy. 


FOR THOUSANDS OF years and still today in many parts of the world, brooms were fashioned at home as needed from whatever brushy stuff was on hand: reeds, sticks or grasses, lashed together, often with a stick pushed into them.

Like magic, we will transform wooden sticks and local grasses into enchanting, one-of-a-kind brooms featuring hand-carved handles. Start by learning carving skills, incorporating stains and woodburning. Then, using cordage, beeswax and creativity, we will transform our branches into brooms.

This workshop will be done around a warm fire in the pristine bush of Jackeys Marsh.

All levels welcome; some hand strength required.
