About the Event

A Hands-On Craft

Dustin Cecil, the maker behind broomtown, will walk you through handling broomcorn (also known as sorghum) to explore sculptural forms.

These ornaments are great for ceremony or decorating and they can also be used as a small hand whisk broom. No experience is necessary but having some arm and leg strength is helpful. Most participants work fast enough to make at least 2 broomcorn dolls. Several colors of nylon will be available for you to choose from, not just the black—make your doll as whimsical and magical as you wish!

You can expect to set aside three hours for this workshop, although you might finish before we wrap up for the night. We will also go over basic weaving techniques so anyone can join in.

Registration closes June 9!

For further questions about this workshop, don’t hesitate to contact Dustin (mr.dustincecil@gmail.com)

Meet the Maker

Dustin Cecil has been working on his craft since 2018. Using the traditional method of hand-weaving broom corn (also called sorghum), broomtown carries a plethora of brooms in all sizes and styles made by Dustin himself. Besides brooms, Dustin makes various handicrafts like broom corn dolls and broom charms.

broomtown is based in Olive Hill, KY and you can find some of their inventory on Etsy!
