Traditional Handicraft Workshop in Lapland
Learn about the old traditions of Lappish reindeer antler and wood handicraft.
Ready for a workshop that will give you insight into the Lappish world, reindeer antler crafting and let you walk home with a special self-made homecoming gift as a memory of your visit? This unique experience will take you into the core of Lappish culture and open the doors to a fascinating world of deeply rooted traditions.
The principal raw material used at this handicraft workshop is reindeer antler, which is an ecological material that is naturally shed by reindeers every year. This material has been used for Lappish utility and decorative items for centuries, creating remarkable pieces for generations to enjoy. Your local host's mission is to maintain and preserve the handicraft traditions of working with reindeer antlers and pass the knowledge forward to others.
At this Lappish handicraft workshop you will learn about the reindeer and see for yourself how reindeer antlers are beautifully worked by professionals, like your hosts who are specialists in making handmade Lappish items using reindeer antler and wood. On top of this you will be guided through how to make your own creation out of the special material - perhaps you’ll discover a new hidden talent.
You might also be invited into the warmth of an authentic Lappish log house, and get to hear stories about life in Lapland while enjoying a nice cup of coffee, tea or homemade berry juice. This is one of the most authentic activities you can find in Lapland! Time well spent if you ask us!
So if you feel like diving into an authentic Lappsih experience and have a try at a new skill - let us know and we’ll make it happen!
