DESIGN MARKET CHRISTMAS ON DECEMBER 3rd, SUNDAY, FROM 11 AM TO 5 PM, AT TULLIKAMARI, TAMPERE.
The highly anticipated design event, Tampere’s Design Market, showcases design products such as home goods, clothing, jewelry, and accessories from Finnish brands. Design Market takes place at Tullikamari, which with its red brick walls, provides a splendid setting for this warm-hearted event. Over the years, Design Market has received a lot of positive feedback for its relaxed and delightful atmosphere – experience it yourself and bring a friend along!
The August Design Market will feature over 50 interesting design companies from all around Finland, as well as an art exhibition by artist Niina Kiiveri at Galleria Rajatila. Additionally, the event will introduce new features: YARNISH crochet workshop, SUSTINARE clothing and accessory care station, and a delicious pizza & pasta pop-up! Ensuring a laid-back atmosphere, DJ Sara-Maaria will be setting the mood.
YARNISH Crochet Workshop: Participate in the workshop and create a small basket-like piece using the spiral technique with various materials offered by urban environments. The crochet workshop will be led by fashion designer Riikka Peltola in collaboration with Seams Helsinki. The aim of the workshop is to learn to crochet shapes from materials that can be used in making items such as baskets. The organizers will provide necessary materials and tools, but you can also bring your own. Various thread-like materials will be available, such as wool, linen, paper, cord, and metal wire. Participation fee is 30 euros. No prior crochet experience is required. Pre-registration is not needed.
PIZZA & PASTA POP-UP: The family-friendly American-style indulgence restaurant Crispy Company from Kaleva will bring their pizza cart to Design Market. Artisan pizza made by hand with fresh and high-quality ingredients and pasta made by the PSTA restaurant.
GALLERIA RAJATILA Art Exhibition: Niina Kiiveri, Soft Ponies, 2023. Niina Kiiveri, a visual artist from Tampere, is currently interested in dreams and the mechanisms of realizing them. At Design Market, she presents her new work, Soft Ponies. The ponies in the artwork live a second life. They have their own past, emotions, and new identity, with their own stories to tell. These ponies are soft yet tough, privileged yet marginalized. What kind of pony are you? The soft toys used in the artwork were acquired from flea markets and recycling centers.
TAITO PIRKANMAA Jewelry Bar: At the jewelry bar, everyone can design and create their dream earrings from various shapes and colors of wooden elements. The hand-painted parts are made from Finnish birch plywood and manufactured in Seinäjoki. There’s no age limit at this bar, so everyone is welcome to create stunning jewelry for themselves or as gifts.
Warmly welcome to enjoy a diverse event showcasing Finnish design! FREE ADMISSION.
