#TIP FOR GROUPS Work and magic at art workshops - guided visit to art workshops
“The burning in his soul, the fire in his heart he cast in works of brass. Wonders, he believed, would surely come to pass: The dream grandest of them all must be made real!*
Art is always made with heart and a burning passion. To this day, artisans at the Raahen Taitopaja in the old foundry cast metal and make traditional straw and glass mobiles, glass works and candles using age-old methods. In the Lapaluoto workshop of graphic arts in the picturesque Lapaluoto district that used to house the workers of the old Santaholma sawmill, art comes together with history in the unique environment.
The tour takes you for visits at the two workshops for introduction and work demonstration at Raahen Taitopaja and the graphics workshop of Lapaluoto. Between the workshop visits, you will go on a guided sightseeing tour of Raahe and enjoy lunch at Hotel Raahen Hovi or the Trade House of Lang
Raahen Taitopaja and Lapaluodon workshop of graphic arts also feature shops where you can find unique high-quality items to take home as souvenirs.
