Wrapped Hand Wisk, Broom Making Workshop
It’s time we did another class, and this time we will be making a Turkey Tail style Hand Wisk or a Hawk Tail. These are functional brooms for the home and magickal workings. We will go over some of the magickal ways to use a broom, and then we will make one, from the comfort of your own home (it is a live digital workshop that was pre-recorded so we can keep offering it all over the world in your own time zone and at your own pace.)
This is for the workshop recording of the class and does not include any materials. You may source the materials yourself, or purchase a kit from us online at Queen Meb (here).
Our Broom Making Story:
One of my (Erika’s) ancestors is a Lenape indigenous woman who was known to travel around, sell brooms, linens, tell fortunes, and heal people with herbs. This is something that has been on repeat in the back of my mind.
I have struggled to get brooms in when the demand is up at the store and I have chosen to honor my ancestors by creating a series of brooms in my own design inspired by my multi-influenced heritage.
