        Traditional Craft: Making a Broom

        Berea College Crafts has made brooms since 1920. In this video, students demonstrate how a broom is crafted. Broomcorn is secured around the handle with wire, then a decorative checkered pattern is crafted on the handle. After the broom head is stitched, the bottom is trimmed. Last, a leather string is tied through a hole in the handle so the broom can be hung for proper storage.
