The Hill Street Country Club and Linksoul Lab is proud to present a traditional broom pop up and workshop with broom maker/craft witch, Bethany of Bristle & Stick. We only have 12 limited spaces open to the public with three scholarships available. Please follow us @thehillstreetcountryclub on instagram for scholarship details.

Beginning at 11:00 am. Bethany will talk about her personal journey creating functional art and an open craft table will be available before broom making workshop begins at 12:00pm.

Brooms are used around the world for daily and ritual cleansing of spaces. A broom is an important part of making a safe and sacred space.In this industrial modern world handcrafts of all kinds are being replaced by machine made goods. The broom is no exception. Handcrafted brooms are on the brink of extinction. In this four hour class you will learn the basics of Broom Craft. We will each make a turkey wing broom like in the picture to take home and use in our own daily cleansing rituals.

Bethany (they/them) is a teacher and student of ancestral skills. For as long as they can remember they’ve turned to the trees and animals in the forest for council. Bethany believes strongly in the healing powers of nature, believing that strengthening our connection with the natural world can improve our interpersonal relationships and emotional wellbeing. Bethany has found that working the hands with elements of nature brings some of the deepest healing and feels like it is their path to help bridge the gap between humans and nature, bringing to light how that relationship can help heal trauma. Bethany has worked with many different natural elements with a strong emphasis on different ways of processing skins (e.g making and using Brain-tan, Bark-tan, rawhide, and furs), earth pigments; and is a professional Broom Maker.
