The Sketchbook Exhibition & Sketchbook Lunches

Exhibit at Garden Room (Kämp Galleria, 2nd floor)
Open Tue-Fri 11-18, Sat 12-16, Sun–Mon closed.

Piknik People Studio presents a celebration of making thoughts visible. The Sketchbook Garden presents visualisations of thinking that usually stay private, a tool that designers and artists have been always using. A sketchbook is a tool; friend; document; playground – it becomes what its’ owner needs it to be.

The exhibition showcases 10 designer’s sketchbooks that illustrate the thinking process and development of ideas. A sketchbook is a tool for the creation and construction of thought. It’s been said that the designer’s most important tool is the ability to think and a sketchbook facilitates this process. There are as many ways to use the sketchbook as there are people. In this exhibition, Piknik People Studio celebrates the craft of making a book your own and wants to inspire everyone to try out sketch booking. What’s in your head?

We invited 10 heavy users of sketchbooks to showcase their work: Joonas Luotonen, Mari Savio & Nelma Savio, Matti Pikkujämsä, Anna Kokki, Karri Laitinen, Paavo Halonen, Paula Susitaival, Saga Santala (and more)

In addition to the exhibition, Picnic People Studio is organizing Sketchbook Lunch workshops every Wednesday in February, together with Waffdaddy. The workshop is open at lunchtime from 11:00 to 13:00 for up to 10 people at a time. A brand new Picnic People Studio Project Sketchbook can be purchased on site! There’s no pre-registration for the workshop.

Also: Non-stop Sketchbook Picnic every Saturday from 12:00 to 16:00 in February – come and sketch with the designers of Picnic People Studio! No pre-registration.
