The fantail or “Turkey-Wing” pattern can be seen in the work of traditional Appalachian and indigenous artisans.
Using this technique our students make a small Whisk broom with a beautifully woven handle and braided detail, (designed by student Allison Dallman and available in natural or Multi), and the beautifully colored Hearthsweep with a fully braided handle. These brooms make a powerful statement about the skills our students develop while at work. All hand-made craft item colors may vary a little from the color you see on your computer screen or in the catalog.

As an expat Kentuckian exiled in California, I feel richly connected with my heritage when I look over at my whisk on the hearth. Thank you Berea, for honoring the thread of our shared history -- and weaving it into beautiful things!

We saw the making of this wisk broom on a PBS show one evening. We were captivated by the school, its history and the beautiful utilitarian objects that were truly works of art!! We love that it was hand made by a student. We went online and ordered several items for the holidays as special gifts! This school means so much to so many. It’s offering of free tuition and its history of diversity was so beautiful! It is an honor to support Berea College and its students & faculty!!

We first visited Berea College in 1973. Was impressive then, and still is today. Happy to support the school and love the Whisk.
