Workshop leader: Tarja Puukko, Taito Pohjois-Karjala ry
Languages: Finnish and English
Drop-in workshop: 10€/person
Tarja will be on location during both days. No advance registration is required.
During this workshop, you can make a simple birch-bark ring or an ecological dish-brush.
The ring is a simple braid and will last for about a day. Therefore it is a good idea to make one for each day of the week.
Housiain is a traditional dish and washing-up brush, especially meant for pots and pans. It combines the beauty of the birch-bark with the inner ability of the material to curl up. The brush is made of strips of birch-bark bound together and then immersed in hot water. The housiain can also be used as a key ring.
