Please join us for the grand opening of Labora Workshops for Children on the 12th of January at Laboratooriumi 22. You can join our free workshops from 12:00 to 15:00. You can try out new workshops in animation, printing, and papermaking. Afterwards, we will all go down the street to Laboratooriumi 25 to officially open and celebrate the space with cake and music.
For those who did not have the opportunity to visit our workshops in autumn, you can see what we were up to in this video.
Labora Workshops for Children mission statement:
We teach what we do, to spread knowledge of the traditional arts of letterpress printing, papermaking, and calligraphy. We wish to spark confidence in one’s creativity. Having taken part in our workshop, you should leave with the feeling of creative ownership, of having made something worthwhile and beautiful with your own hands. We want to show that working with one’s hands is intrinsically valuable, and that the process and people involved in it are of more value than the result itself.
