Babies’ Colour Workshop

Babies’ colour workshop is a multisensory visual art workshop for babies and families with babies. The main focus is on experiencing various colours and materials when a child and parent are doing and admiring things together. The activity is suitable for babies from 4 months old. Workshops are held at the workshop space Itikka. Colour workshops are offered to groups that come together several times and to individual quick-visit workshops. The language in the workshops is generally Finnish but the educator of the group also speaks English, so participating in English is possible. Sign up on the NetTicket online store.
The activity in the workshop happens on the floor. Each baby and adult have their own spot on the floor where the workshop instructor brings all the materials being used. The workshop begins with exploring different materials and colours, usually various types of objects together with the child. After that the painting starts. The paints are made of eatable materials like berries in different forms, fruits and vegetables starch, seeds and so on. The materials are chosen according to the official nutrition and food recommendations by the Finnish Food Authority.
