I graduated from The School of Vocational Teacher Education at Tampere University of Applied Sciences as a Vocational Teacher in the Cultural Field (AMO) in 2015. However, I have taught to play the piano as well as ceramics since 2003 to young people and adults. I don’t give piano lessons anymore, but I teach ceramics increasingly.
I offer concrete pottery teaching, lectures and creative activity, in which the clay has important meaning.
Recently, I have been developing and offering more creative courses for children and young people with thematically discusses about their own lives and about growing among the social community. Themes may be bullying and its prevention, empathy, respect for others, observing of own emotions and how to manage them. The most important thing here is the development of creativity, emerging thoughts and self-making process rather than the result.
