Maker Series: Finnish Himmeli
The himmeli is a traditional Finnish holiday decoration made out of straw. Traditionally himmelis hung above dining tables to ensure a good crop for the coming year, and stayed on display from Christmas till Midsummer. The structure of a himmeli – especially a bigger and more complex one – is visually striking, with geometrical shapes made out of hundreds, or even thousands, of pieces of straw.
In this class you will learn how to construct your own himmeli and will take away a medium size finished project for your home. Your class instructor is Mia Saporito, an interdisciplinary artist from Finland.
