Climate change is shaping our environment at great speed and at the same time is defining the future of world in which we live. Our youth could not alter the course of climate change when it was still possible, and this brings up important questions: Do we have the right to feel scared, angry or hope? Who is responsible for the future? What can we demand from others as well as from ourselves? What kind of future will our generation have?
Known for her colourful animal and plant themed knits, textile artist Sirkka Könönen’s (1947-2018) production is on display in the Craft Museum of Finland’s Lobby Gallery 21.12.2019-1.3.2020, in The Colourer of the World – Textile Artist Sirkka Könönen exhibition. Her life was comprehensive as a textile artist, handicraft entrepreneur, and artist, and its abundance is brought out when we step into Sirkka’s colourful, fairy tale world.
Get inspired in tailored workshops!
Doing crafts with our friends or family is fun! With your dearest and nearest everyone will get inspired about new and easy handicrafts.
We will tailor our wokshops to fit your needs. You don't have to have any experience about handcraft in advance, for it's all about having fun and trying crafts together.
A short guided tour is included in all workshops as well as guidance in the workshop and material use.
For groups we recommend touring the exhibitions under the guidance of the guide. Pre-ordered guided tours will be organized in the time that you wish. We will be happy to tailor a tour to your group.
For guided tours, the ideal size is 25 people, for larger groups we recommend two guides. There is a lot to see in the museum, so after the guided tour you should also book some time to explore the museum.
