Spirits of Hearth and Home - Tonttu in Finnish Folklore
Create your own tonttu and learn something new about the role of these elusive household spirits in the Finnish mindset!
New to Finland? Do you wish you could understand the Finnish way of life a little better? As humans, we are deeply influenced by the stories we tell one another. Come along and hear some of the stories that makes Finns who they are!
During the experience you will learn something new about the role of tonttus (Finnish spirits of the household) in local folklore, customs, and the Finnish mindset. You will also craft your own tonttu keepsake out of felt and other natural materials. After creating our tonttus, we will welcome them into the world with a short ceremony.
All this will take place over a cozy cup of a hot beverage of your choice in a magical and athmospheric fantasy tavern (Tarinoiden taverna), a short walk from centre of Oulu.
