— MARK-MAKING MINDFULNESS
In this mindful monoprint workshop, artist and art educator Nikki Gardham will be exploring a main theme in the Moomin stories — living in harmony with nature.

Tove Jansson (1914-2001)
Make the most of after-hours entry to the Tove Jansson exhibition, and get to know the Moomins through the original book illustrations and well as comic strips.

Food and Drink
“One can’t be too dangerous, if they like to eat pancakes. Especially with jam on it”, Moomintroll once wisely said. As no gathering is complete without a suitable feast, we'll be serving special Moomin inspired food and drink for the evening — from Moominpappa’s favourite tipple to traditional Finnish dishes.
