Our 2023 Workshop Series is bringing ArtIsans from our area and around the world to LPCCA.
Students will make a primitive cobweb broom in the traditional style. This lightweight narrow broom is great for reaching all the places cobwebs can be found- Great for sweeping the ceiling too. These brooms are functional but make great decorative items, and great gifts! In this workshop we will learn the basic weaving techniques used to make a broom, with natural broomcorn (sorghum). No experience required for this project. Everyone will go home with at least one completed cobweb broom (most make two).
Most painters arrive unsure of their capabilities to paint. But after class, all students depart with a high level of confidence, able to continue their love for the newfound craft! All barn quilts are completed in the one day class. My clients have a vibrant and extremely beautiful barn quilt. It will be one of a kind and can proudly be displayed on any barn, fence or wall. A true family heirloom!
Dustin Cecil has been making brooms in the traditional style for about 4 years after taking a week long workshop at the John C Campbell folk school. He currently lives in Eastern Kentucky and has enjoyed traveling and teaching broom making workshops for the last couple of years. Dustin’s other interests Include all things related to fiber arts and textiles- especially learning traditional techniques, and their histories- he is also a weaver, quilter, and occasional painter/printmaker.
