What to bring

- It can get pretty cold during winter, so make sure to come with several layers of clothes, preferably woollen. Also summer nights can be cool in Finland, so it´s a good idea to have a warm woollen pullover, woollen socks and sometimes hat and woollen gloves can be useful too. We can also borrow you more warm clothes when needed!
- Don't forget a swimsuit for the sauna and swimming. Also, if you can fit it in your luggage, a bathrobe to go to sauna is nice to have! It´s also possible to borrow one, if you can´t bring it with you. It´s good to bring also some slippers of flip-flops for walking in the house and go to sauna in the garden!

Your own equipment and materials
- We may have some materials you can use or buy, but in general the artists in residence bring their own materials. There´s a list of the most popular art supply stores in Helsinki and online on this website!
