Design Lab is the perfect place for exploring design processes and getting creative. In this workshop you will have chance to test your skills in porcelain painting using a technique often used by ceramic artist Laura Pehkonen.

“Ceramics and the different decoration techniques are my area of competence. I like to work  with strong colors, surfaces and patterns. The paradise workshops are inspired by the Arabia Paratiisi tableware series with its extravagant fruits and flowers designed by Birger Kaipiainen.”

- Laura Pehkonen​
