Brooms are used around the world for daily and ritual cleansing of spaces. A broom is an important part of making a safe and sacred space. In this industrial modern world handcrafts of all kinds are being replaced by machine-made goods. The broom is no exception. Handcrafted brooms are on the brink of extinction.

In this five-hour Advanced class, Bethany will guide each student will learn about and prep their broom handle and make a full-size Witches Broom. Brooms are legendary, magical and ordinary at the same time.

As we begin to craft our brooms, Milla will teach broom lore, and share stories about witches, plant healing, flying, weaving realities, and many other magical old ways, and discover why brooms are so powerful in our own heritages and mythologies.

*Prior Broom Class with Bethany suggested but not a requirement.

About the teachers

Milla Prince grew up in the endless boreal forests of Eastern Finland, about two hundred miles from the Arctic Circle, and a hundred miles from the Russian border. Her work as a writer and folk herbalist is grounded in her people’s ancestral folk medicine and that culture’s surviving land-based practices.

Milla is also a student of my paternal side’s Palestinian medicine, and loves exploring both the striking differences and surprising similarities of the two cultures.

Among her many passions are connecting people with their own ancestral folk lineage with plants and writing about the intersections of old ways, ancient practices and the modern world. Through her work, I hope to share plant medicine, ancestral herbalism, community resilience, reciprocity, land-based healing, animism and folk magic for the wild and wooly times we live in.

Milla is an immigrant to what we currently call the USA, and lives on a small island on unceded Coast Salish Territory in the Pacific Northwest.

Bethany (they/them) is a teacher and student of ancestral skills. For as long as they can remember they’ve turned to the trees and animals in the forest for council.

Bethany believes strongly in the healing powers of nature, believing that strengthening our connection with the natural world can improve our interpersonal relationships and emotional wellbeing.

Bethany has found that working the hands with elements of nature brings some of the deepest healing and feels like it is their path to help bridge the gap between humans and nature, bringing to light how that relationship can help heal trauma. Bethany has worked with many different natural elements with a strong emphasis on different ways of processing animal skins (e.g making and using Brain-tan, Bark-tan, rawhide, and furs), earth pigments; and is a professional Broom Maker.

Bethany's Matrilineal roots stem from Mexico and recently they have become a student of Curanderismo- This is the folk medicine of Mexico that their Great Grandmother Practiced.
