INSTRUCTOR: Broom making has given Everett Bailey the opportunity to preserve a forgotten craft and master a difficult but satisfying skill. He apprenticed in the Canterbury Broom Shop, learning the trade and making brooms with Broomsquire Jack Frost. Everett appreciates the fact that broom making fulfills one's creative urges while also producing something functional and useful. He prefers to keep his designs simple, staying true to the original Shaker flat broom.
