CRAFT CORNER IN HELSINKI WELCOMED ESTONIAN MITTENS DURING ESTONIAN-FINNISH TEXTILE ARTISTS’ JOINT EXHIBITION October 2017
Nordic Knitters were chosen as one of the four partners in “Knitted Friendship” – an Estonian-Finnish textile artists first show. The show will be repeated in Tallinn, Estonia next spring.
Beautiful ancient mitten patterns were accompanied with Siberian Seto floral motifs. There were mittens, gloves and extra long cuff mittens displayed.
The exhibition stayed open for four weeks. On one of the weekends, there were also workshops and pop-up shop. It drew a lot of crowd and the whole event was warmely welcomed.
Thank you, Estonian Folk Art and Craft Union and Finnish TAITO organization for this pleasant opportunity!
