Broom Making II Class

Join Darke County Parks as they welcome back master broom maker, Frank Rouse to the Nature Center at Shawnee Prairie on Saturday August 13th at 9am. Frank has over 40 years of experience making brooms of all shapes and sizes and loves passing on the skill he learned from his grandfather. This time he will teach participants how to make a turkey wing whisk broom that is especially handy for sweeping out corners and tight spaces and originated as a broom to sweep the ashes out of the back corners of the hearth. A $12 materials fee will be charged for this workshop. Space is limited, so be sure to call and reserve your spot for this program today.
