Handicrafts Workshop: Straw Decoration, Helsinki

Handicrafts Workshop: Straw Decoration, Helsinki

Straw artesan Pirjo Väisänen  creates beautiful interior elements out of straw using the traditional techniques. She uses as her material cosy rye straw, delicate spelt and masculine rush and decorates her work with pearls and chrystals. The basic unit is a hedron. You can build  floors to the decorations and make them bigger and bigger or you can make them long and hanging.

Straw handicrafts workshops are available for groups of 6-10 people in Helsinki or Fiskars. During these workshops you will learn the basic techniques and you will create a small straw work, which can be decorated with pearls. Four hours is a limited time for learning the techniques thoroughly but you will get started.

If your group gets really inspired, it is possible to organise later an additional weekend course in Fiskars. On the weekend course the different materials will be introduced to you and you will start from the very beginning by handling the material first.
