Are you visiting Helsinki and interested in learning a traditional Finnish handicraft technique? Come to our studio and take a short course in weaving traditional Finnish rag rugs in a wooden floor loom. We will start by telling you about the Finnish floor looms and how they work. After that you will learn how to make weft material from used textiles in the traditional way. You will end up weaving a mini rug (approx. 45 x 45 cm) in one of our floor looms. By the end of the course, we will finish the item that you will take home with you.
Coffee and tea.
All the materials and tools needed for the experience.
We are Zoe and Merja, two craft enthusiasts brought together by weaving. Both of us had a different career before starting this journey but weaving and knitting have been our passion for the last 10 years. Finally after finishing our studies as Textile artisan and Clothing artisan respectively, we opened a weaving and knitting studio in Helsinki. Welcome to Kutomo Craft Studio!
Kutomo Craft Studio is the first weaving and knitting studio in Helsinki. We are located in Jätkäsaari, south-west Helsinki. We will spend the whole time indoors in our cosy studio surrounded by colourful yarns and wooden floor looms.
