They both are storytellers and with the works they illustrate their inner worlds. Pohjola and Poijula are masters of handling and merging different natural materials. There are mirrors, stones, a burnt loom, skulls, bream scales and fluffs of dandelions in their works. The artists use such techniques as embroidery, painting and collages of objects.
Travel trough 2000 years of crafts!
A Journey in Time exhibition is located in the auditorium, on the second floor of the museum. The exhibition timeline charts the most definitive phenomena in the history of crafts. The texts and images are only a tiny scratch on the surface of the interesting and diverse past of crafts. The journey starts from thousands of years back, the time before calendars or clocks, and moves towards the modern times.
The Dressed with Pride section at the National Costume Center of Finland presents traditional outfits from different parts of Finland in various eras. The exhibition also explores the history and the manufacturing methods behind the costumes. The exhibition draws attention to the remarkable level of detail in the costumes: flax and wool fabrics, pewter brooches, colourful stripe patterns on the skirts, headgear, pockets…
