Design Workshop: Dreamscape

The Dreamscape design workshop draws its inspiration from the main exhibition Kustaa Saksi: In the Borderlands. Together, we will be inspired to look at Saksi’s rich visual language, the stories it conveys and experience the works of the exhibition. The work takes place under the guidance of a director in the workshop Studio. In the workshop, the technique is collage work, which is used to create your own dreamscape with the help of colors and shapes. The workshop takes place on a non-stop basis, so you can join any time.

Picture reading at the Kustaa Saksi: In the Borderlands exhibition

During the picture reading, we stop by a few works from the Kustaa Saksi: In the Borderlands exhibition. Together, under the guidance of a guide, we will discuss the rich visual language of Saksi’s work and the stories it conveys, and be inspired by the works in the exhibition. The group can accommodate a maximum of 10 people and there are two groups. The language of discussion is Finnish. Register for the event in advance. Sign up for the picture reading here.

The event is free of charge. The guided tours are in Finnish and English. The Design Museum building is accessible. You can find more information about the accessibility of the Design Museum here.
