More information of the workshops and venue

For over 10 years time Felt Faction has organized international summer felt workshops in Orimattila, Finland. Typically felt workshops take place at the end of July.

People call these workshops an once in a lifetime experience as they take place in an idyllic Finnish scenery; middle of a forest and by a beautiful lake. Saunas are heated every night and you are accompanied by a bunch of likeminded individuals all crazy for felt making.

Also Elina’s style of teaching is rather unique – she and her team throw themselves into feltmaking frenzy and nobody leaves the felt workshop without fabulous designs to show and the knowledge of Elina’s techniques.

If you are planning to organize a felt making workshop and wish to invite Elina to give master classes please feel free to enquire.


Summer workshop venue info

The course will take place at Salusjärvi campsite owned by the town of Orimattila. The campsite has a fully equipped kitchen with good possibilities for cooking, so please bring groceries along with you, because the shops are located 13 km away at the Orimattila center. There will be Finnish students arriving by car, so you can also do your grocery shoppig together with them.

Out of experience I can tell that what people really do need is lots and lots of juice, water etc. To drink. Wine might be a bliss for recovering after a day of heavy felt making. You will also appreciate having ice cream + fast and easy meals.

Important: The kitchen is used by everyone, so please take care to clean up after yourself so the others can find the kitchen clean and ready to use. That way we can all focus on what we came for: making the best felt designs possible!

The building is not a 5-star hotel, but has proved to be very functional. It has one big open hall, kitchen and two, large, dormitory-style bedrooms. There are also toilets and showers for ladies and gentlemen.

Down by the lake there are two big saunas. We will be working in the main hall and outside on the terrace. You can continue felting all night long if you wish. There is enough space for everyone, but in case you know that you are not comfortable sleeping in a dormitory accommodation, please bring a tent with you.
