Cabin Creek Studio - Brooms
My Experience in Broom Making....
My first recollection of hand made brooms was at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. The broom maker for the park, Stan Inman and I became very good friends. Over the years, he has taught me everything he knows about broom making. In addition, I have taken some instruction from Shawn Hoefer of Laffing Horse Crafts in Mountain View, Arkansas.
I am now offering classes in broom making at my shop in Warrenton Missouri. Everything from kitchen brooms to whisk brooms and cobweb brooms are made from broom corn, some of which I grow myself.
What are brooms made from?
Broom corn is a crop grown specifically for broom making. It's actually not corn at all. It is a type of sorghum.
In 2011, I planted my first crop of broom corn.
