Open workshops in the Studio

Be inspired by Tove and her art. Join us for some crafting at the Moomin Museum Studio!

Discover your inner artist by taking part in one of our workshops, which offer a fun, easy way of experimenting with new crafting ideas. Drop in any time during your museum visit – the workshops run non-stop. Our instructors are always on hand to inspire, advise, and help you get started, but you’re free to work on your own at your own pace. The themes vary regularly, ranging from handicrafts to community art projects. Join in and get hooked on crafting – adults welcome too!

Now in programme: Ex libris workshop

Ex libris, aka a bookplate, is a piece of printed paper adhered inside the front cover of a book to indicate the owner of the book.
The exhibition From Tove’s Bookshelf introduces some of Jansson’s ex libris designed by herself. In our Ex libris engraving workshop you can create your own ex libris using a similar technique to Jansson but with softcut engraving plate instead of linoleum. The workshop is suitable also for all ages. Design, draw, engrave and print, and you will have your own ex libris. Then you just need to decide which book you will personalize with your own ex libris!

The Moomin Museum Studio is open daily from noon to 4.00 pm. Admission is free of charge to all museum visitors.

N.B.! The Studio is occasionally closed for private bookings.

You can combine a workshop with a guided tour of the museum. Check out our workshop themes here.
