Let your inspiration flow and book a workshop including an ECO – overnight stay in the typical Sámi lávvu.
If you are looking for some relaxing and creative moments then we can really recommand you to do a workshop, close to nature. Your host lives on the countryside about 15 km from Jokkmokk centre and you feel welcome the second you step into her world. The homestead and studio are situated by a lake. Nature all around. Your accommodation is a lávvu (tipitent). There is an outside toilet (utedass), sauna, a lovely kitchen garden and off course the lake.
Maybe you wish to try 2 or even 3 different workshops? Make it an exclusive short vacation and get to know Jokkmokk as well.
“Wild” Idea A – Painting with needle and thread is to work with fabric, threads, needles, paper, leaves, grass, etc. Let the materials lead in lines, surfaces and shapes, to images, aspects and glimpses of the life of trees. This is the starting point for courses in free embroidery where no prior knowledge is needed, just a willingness to sit still for a while and let the threads speak. Embroider a forest pillow. Embroider yourself a warm forest pillow with patterns and colors free from your mind. For you to sit on under an old pine or on a stone in the enclosure of the trees.
“Wild” Idea B – Tangles from reindeerhoves We carve a nice forest stick or sew a ribbon of bark tanned reindeer skin lined with wool. Then we attach reindeer hooves or toe bones from reindeer. All basic materials are included, materials for decoration are available for purchase.
“Wild” Idea C – Make a rattle A rythm instrument, for relaxation and dancing.
Make yourself a rattle with haired reindeer skin (not haired), a nice stick from the old-growth forest or from her garden and some seeds or stones from the lands. Tie together and adorn with forest bird feathers.
