We are looking for a volunteer for an art and textile workshop. Lyhty's Textile Workshop Luovilla was founded in 1994. Luovilla is located in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Since August 2018, Luovilla has 12 adults with intellectual disabilities. Luovilla's activities are guided by the workshop's individual resources and creativity-based way of working, as well as the need to express themselves through crafts or other arts. In Luovilla, the workshops design and produce handicraft products and artworks with the help of cultural directors for sales and exhibitions. Luovilla has the opportunity to practice professional skills such as craft, textile designer, salesman and visualist. The workshop also makes it possible to practice life skills. Luovilla provides an enabling environment to develop craft skills based on one's own strengths. The role of the volunteer is to support and assist the workshop clients with the tutors. Working hours between 9-16 from Mon-Friday.
