Come and explore exhibition themes further at our evening workshops! We explore both traditional and more advanced techniques. The workshops are for adults (except for the Creating art with children workshop), and their language is Finnish. The workshops are run by visual artists and art education professionals who have years of experience in their subjects: Annabel Kajetski, Elina Katara, Marjo Levlin, Heidi Mikkola, Vappu Rossi and Inka Yli-Tepsa. The workshops are held in the workshop space, second-level mezzanine.
