The guest at the Studium Catholicum's Culture Night in May is textile artist Helena Vaari who will be talking about using her needle as a paintbrush. Helena Vaari was meant to visit the Studium already in January, but illness forced a change in the schedule.
Needle as Paintbrush
Helena Vaari’s technique is demanding artistic handicraft which combines free art embroidery and applique. Ecclesiastical textiles were embroidered and sewn as early as the Middle Ages. Vaari’s art embroidery is based on ancient tradition and uses modern methods.
Please note that Helena Vaari will be speaking in Finnish.
The Studium’s Culture Nights are a programme of friendly and informal gatherings with various activities, such as music, films, talks, pop-up café etc. Come and enjoy yourself!
