Arts & Crafts Workshop

Duration: 60 mins.

What it is about…

Is it really true that no two snowflakes are alike? Scientists tell us it’s very unlikely. In this art workshop, you’ll get to test the theory by making your very own snowflakes — in all sorts of different designs! Finnish artist Heini Riitahuhta is a graduate of Helsinki’s University of Art and Design, and a designer for Finland Arabia, a company famous for its beautiful dishes and gifts. Heini will show you how to craft stunning snowflakes, using Finnish supplies including Stora Enso Lumi paper and Fiskars scissors and tools. In parts of Finland, it can start snowing as early as the end of August — and the snow doesn’t start melting until April! So Heini has seen lots of snow —in fact, you might call her a “snowflake expert”!
