Workshopit siirtyy eteenpäin niin pitkälle kuin tarvis vaatii.
Studiolla on käsidesiä, mutta voit myös tuoda oman käsidesin ja mahdollisen hengityssuojaimen.
Jos sinulla on mahdollisuuksia tukea ostamalla ennakkoon lahjakortteja Workshopiin tai jotain muuta verkkokaupastani (instagram), niin siitä olisi suuren suuri apu. Laitan instagramissa myyntiin yhtä ja toista kun tästä alkuällistyksestäni toivun.
Tärkeintä kuitenkin on terveys.
All workshops have been posponed for exactly 2 months or until this crisis is over.
The studio provides sterilizing gel, but you can bring your own gel and also your own mask.
If you have the chance to purchase in advance workshops as a gift or other artwork from my instagram or galleries, that will be a very good help. I will proceed with the instagram updating during the crisis waiting time.
What matters now is our health.
All events will be postponed exactly 2 months. You can still register and we will keep on track together.
Helsinki Design Week
The event was part of Helsinki Design Week’s programme. Founded in 2005, Helsinki Design Week is the largest design festival in the Nordic countries. Held annually in September, the multidisciplinary festival presents design from a number of fields including fashion, architecture and urban culture. The festival dates are 5–15 September 2019. Helsinki Design Week is produced by the design service agency Luovi Productions Ltd.
Finally after almost a year of negotiations, changes, construction, repairs, recycling, planning, reflections, calculations and risks, VARGAS PRINT STUDIO officially opens its doors to the public. Everything is ready in order to start another dream, another step in a new city with new people and new beginnings. Many steps still lay ahead, but little by little everything will start to get shape...with your support, your smile.
This is one of the prints made at Vargas print Studio during July (2019) by the first guest artist Tiitus Petäjäniemi (b. 1983).
Petäjäniemi's simple and sensitive artworks related with Finnish culture, humour, introversion feelings towards mundane situations associated with isolated winter activities, will be exhibited next winter at Mikkeli Art Museum. In Petäjäniemi's words,
“I made couple different ideas, right now my favourite of them are series called ice fishers, its 20 prints of black and white characters doing ice fishing.”
Tiitus Petäjäniemi is a fine artist working with painting, photography and printmaking. Petäjäniemi finished his Master in Fine Arts in 2016 by the Arts University in Helsinki.
