When you step into this studio home and listen hard, you can hear the artist’s call: “Even though there is work to keep company with, there is often a longing for a proper human”. So welcome to the unique art-filled home of Jonas, Maikki, and Vappu Heiska! The over a hundred-year-old building, the objects, art, and photographs take you on a voyage through time and as part of the lives of the family of artists over the course of two generations.

The Studio Home of the Heiska Family is not accessible.
