Join Jake Benoit-Wylie for a mystical journey into the art of besom making in this 1 hour workshop! You'll learn how to craft a traditional besom. Besoms have been used for centuries in various mystical and spiritual practices, from sweeping away negative energy to symbolizing the union of a couple in a handfasting ceremony. In this workshop, you'll not only learn how to create your own besom, but you'll also gain insight into the history and symbolism behind this powerful tool.
