  • Foraging trip in Helsinki

    Foraging tripTraditionally this time of the year was scarce with food in Finland, since the harvest season was long ago and nothing new was growing in fields yet. But in the forests there is already lot to eat! The newly sprouted wild vegetables are at their most delicious at the moment. Join us for a foraging trip to the woods in Kumpula and learn to know the most common edible plants.

  • art as a magickal practice

    "this course will bring together artists and occultists to discuss how art and magick intersect.  we will study both high and low magick techniques to see how they can be applied to an art practice.  some days will consist of lectures on occult history, theory, and specific occultists/artists who use magick in their work.  other sessions will be experiential meditations and rituals.  the general discourse will be about how to apply magick to art- as concept, physical material, ritual process, or final result.

  • Extreme brewing

    Do you like beer?  Do you like aggressively hopped, intense beer that challenges the taste buds?  Does the word "experimental", in description of beer, entice you instead of scaring you away?  Do you find all mass-produced Finnish beer to be sadly lacking in taste?  Well, make your own! We will learn how to make beer at home, but explore techniques not commonly used by other homebrewers: stealing yeast from commercial beer, throwing weird ingredients in, and overloading any/all elements of beer.

  • Wildpainting the autumn colors in Nuuksio national park on Sunday 10 October

    On Sunday, October 10, 2010, We gather at 11.00 am at Helsinki railway station, from where we take the local commuter train to Espoo. From Espoo railway station, we take the bus right into Nuuksio National Park. Here we spend the afternoon making paintings with acrylic paint, using the colours in surprising new ways, in an effort to "see with fresh eyes." Everybody takes also some (hopefully self-made) food and coffee/tea along, which we share doing the breaks.

  • Sienestää metsässä

    Mushroom season is coming up and I would like to learn about which mushroom in the finnish forests are edible. This would include learning a few different types of mushrooms that are edible and tasty.  As well as techniques for scouting and picking them.  I would also be interested to learn what to do with the buckets of mushrooms I have picked if I can't eat them all. Drying and preserving techniques. This class could happen a few times and should be in the forest.  Maybe at the end we can have a big mushroom cookoff!

  • Deleuzian philosophy reading group

    This class is envisioned as a discussion reading group which focuses on reading texts by Gilles Deleuze (as the starting point), meeting together as a group every two to three weeks in order to discuss a chosen text. The aim will be to share variable interpretations of the given text, to consider each others viewpoints, and to also look at how the text may relate to each participants individual life philosophy, research, and interests.

    This workshop is now scheduled as the Cob oven building workshop for tomorrow night and the coming weekend! Check out the calendar!

Wouldn't it be great to build a stone oven yourself, together with other enthusiasts, and learn basic brick-layering techniques and bread-making? At the Kalasatama area, with a public access to people who want to organize events or just celebrate with friends?
