Short Holiday in lake district Finland: Knitting Lover's Dream, groups

Short Holiday in lake district Finland: Knitting Lover's Dream, groups

A short break for handicrafts lovers! Knitting and jewelry workshops with handicrafts store visits. See the lakes, swim in natural water and enjoy the beauty of the nature.
 
Pirtin kehräämö  has 60 year of experience in refinement of Finnish lamb wool. They have special expertise in veined garn.

Raijan aitta  is a real dream shop of all those interested in handicrafts. They have specialised in linen and linen products (clothes and home textiles). The shop is located on an old farm located by the lake Saarijärvi. We'll participate in a knitting retreat (workshop) here. The trip includes a lunch with coffee.

Pauliina Rundgren Handicrafts  is a design handicrafts company, which has specialised in enameling techniques. We'll visit their workshop and hear about the history of enameling and about the company itself and you will get to try enameling yourselves. 

Anttolanhovi  is a new and modern, high-class spa by the lake Saimaa. The hotel is particularly proud for their kitchen, which has already for years invested in pure, local food. Service-minded attitude, well-designed lobbies and other common premises as well as the nature surrounding the spa and making it possible to move around there in many ways, make sure you will enjoy your stay.
