As VisitFinland was looking for some holiday activities, and as we have such good feedback from the craft workshops in Japan, we decided to add another option for your stay in Finland.

0.7 design will be offering craft and design related program for people visiting Kimitoön: you can make your own birch bark basket or small himmeli, both being traditional Finnish crafts, while enjoying the slow pace of your vacation. The 2-hour classes are perfect for beginners and children over 10 years old.

There will be an open workshop for birch bark weaving on Wednesdays starting at 10 o’clock – prebooking is required. The session is reachable by public transportation both from Helsinki and Turku direction. If you can not make it on Wednesdays, just get in touch, so we try to find you another time.

We are planning to add the more birch-related program for season 2018 onwards: collecting of the sap and the bark. We have a plan to add a tour to local artists’ workshops too. We will be adding these workshops on our booking platform during the winter.

Welcome to Kimitoön!
