Handicrafts, art and relaxation - NEW!

HANDICRAFTS, ART AND RELAXATION

Enjoy a stress free day in the idyllic Old town of Porvoo, visiting real artists workshops and getting to know the beautiful town!
This package includes a visit at Willatar, the studio of artist Outi Karikivi. Karikivi is specialized in working with recycling materials in her handicrafts. We get to visit her studio store and workshop, located in an idyllic yard, dating back to the 18th century, in the heart of Old Porvoo. We get to make a little handicraft ourselves using recycling material. An English speaking Porvoo guide will take us for an interesting walking tour, telling us about Porvoo’s history (design theme also available). A tasty lunch is served at restaurant Hanna-Maria. Time for shopping. Our last stop is the art and design gallery Colmio Slow House. The 250 years old house functions as a design shop, art gallery and the studio of the interior designer Päivi Mikola. Mikola tells us about her work with wood as a material. One of her most famous works is a modern rocking chair. Sitting and relaxing in these mentioned chairs, we get to know the gallery’s art exhibition.
