Together we will get inspired to look at familiar stripe patterns in a new way: where can you see stripes and their rhythms? The guided workshop draws its inspiration from the Antti + Vuokko Nurmesniemi exhibition. In the workshop, the technique is sketching and various material experiments, which are tackled by researching, wondering and experimenting together. The workshop is aimed especially at children and young people. The workshop is guided in Finnish and English.
