What does design look like? How does it feel? Where can you see stripes and their rhythms?

Design Workshops for Families inspire and guide children and their adults to make and experience design together. The workshops give ideas for observing your own environment and for your own creative work with design.

The Stripes Design Workshop takes its starting point from the main exhibition, where you get to know the versatile work of two designers, Antti and Vuokko Nurmesniemi. Together, we are inspired to look at familiar stripe patterns in a new way: where can you see stripes and their rhythms? In the workshop, the technique is sketching and various material experiments, which are tackled by researching, wondering and experimenting together.

The workshop takes place on a non-stop basis, so you can join any time between 1pm-3pm. The workshop can accommodate 20 participants at a time. The workshop languages ​​are Finnish and English, and the workshop is guided by Design Museums workshop instructors. The workshop is for everyone and does not require special skills. Recommended for over 6 years old, under 10 years old only when accompanied by an adult. Participation is free with a museum ticket, under 18 years old, Museum Card (Museokortti) holders, the unemployed and those with a Ukrainian passport.
