The Jackson County Public Library will host a Creating Community Workshop on Broom Making with Mickey Sizemore at 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the Atrium. This program is free of charge.
The cobweb broom is made to access hard to reach areas, including those pesky cobwebs in corners.
Moderate hand and arm strength are needed to make the broom. It may be helpful to wear long pants. The class is limited to 10 people. Attendees need to either bring a towel or wear an apron.
Anyone interested can view a video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DsEFhqi8ys on what the class will look like. For more information and to sign up for the class, call the Library at 586-2016.
Sizemore attended WCU in the 1980s and has just recently moved back into the area from Tennessee. He has been making brooms for 10 years and has taught weekend sessions at Warren Wilson on the art of broom making.
This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library. The Jackson County Public Library is a member of Fontana Regional Library (www.fontanalib.org).
