DESCRIPTION

Our looms are prepared with projects, such as scarfs, baby wraps, towels, blankets or rugs. Choose an inspiring project from our page ‘On the looms’ and book the loom sending us an email. Read the studio procedures here. Then you come and start weaving! We take care of everything else. Bring your own weft material or buy it from our shop.

Our staff will be there during opening hours to help you. However, weavers are free to come in from 7:00 to 22:00 everyday to continue weaving in the looms.

The price of your project will be the loom rental per day + the warp material + the weft material. Remember that you can bring your own weft material if you wish, in this case no weft material fee will be included.

The cost of the loom rental per day varies:

  • One time loom rental: 12€/day

  • 10-times loom rental card: 100€ (10€/day). Valid for one year.

  • Studio subscribers: Our monthly subscribers have special offers and discounts on loom rental, yarns, and courses. For more information click here.

 

INCLUDES

  • Ready-to-start project

  • Professional advice and guidance

  • All the necessary weaving and finishing tools

  • Possibility to buy the weft material

DESCRIPTION

We offer a variety of craft courses on weaving, knitting, and other crafts and techniques. Check out our course calendar and send us an email to sign up to the courses.

Our courses have different durations. Some courses are weeks long, others are one weekend long, and others are hours long. Prices depend on the course, so we advice you to check our courses calendar.

If you are visiting Helsinki only for few hours or days, we recommend you our Express courses. They are only few hours long and they specialise on Finnish traditional techniques such as rag rugs, ‘poppana’, and more. Send us an email for more information by clicking here.

We have reserved a corner of the studio for your favourite activities! You are welcome to drop by during the opening hours to knit, crochet, read, or talk to others with the same interests. There is coffee and tea available, so you can make yourself a nice cuppa – let’s take turns replenishing the supply from time to time so that everybody can enjoy a nice hot drink.

We have regular knitting gatherings, check our calendar for more information.

It’s obvious, but just to be clear, this is for free!
