Introduction to Broom Making
Born in the west central mountains of Virginia, where he still resides, Mr Robinson
learned the art of broom making in 1991 and has been making brooms full time since then. Mr Robinson’s brooms appeared in the historical drama Sommersby starring Richard Gere and Jodie Foster and have been purchased by George Washington’s Mount Vernon for use in their portrayal of colonial life. Over the years, demonstrating and teaching his craft has been one of the most fulfilling parts of his journey.
Mr Robinson has been a juried demonstrating artisan at the Waterford Fair since 1991.
