Activities and services

Services from the best talent

Training, design and manufacture – all these require top professionals with top knowhow to ensure the best possible result.

CRAFTS skills and talented makers are needed everywhere. There are thousands of Finns working in craft-based occupations. Finnish Crafts Organization Taito shares occupational knowhow and is involved in training future talent. To provide craftspeople with opportunities to meet each other amidst their everyday work, the organization collaborates widely with entrepreneurs, events, the best designers in the sector and other organizations. Taito-associations produces services and activities for villages, owns and cities, and nationwide campaigns and projects are a natural part of its operations. All this is possible thanks to the trained crafts professionals working for the Finnish Crafts Organization.

Regional crafts associations – centres for rewarding experiences

The broad network of the Taito regional crafts associations’ Crafts Centres offer services such as crafts schools, courses, workshops, exhibitions, ready-made crafts products, materials and diverse crafts ideas. Crafts Centres are open to everyone and provide activities for many different age groups. Many of them are also fascinating tourist attractions and have excellent restaurants or cafés.   Regional crafts associations are involved in the organization of various crafts events and fairs.

The regional associations also offer vocational further training. Training programmes are planned together with our partners and can focus, for example, on strengthening competence, or they can be aimed at immigrants, or consist of employment and entrepreneurial training.
