Design Picnic and Totem pole competition 2012
The Design Picnic event was celebrated in Nuutajärvi on 7 July, 2012. Artisans were invited to the village to sell their wares and hold demonstrations. Kellopytinki courtyard was reserved as picnic area and the band Nummiranta & Takahahmot played in the afternoon.
A totem pole competition took place during the event. Artists, craftspeople and other woodcarving enthusiasts took part in this playful competition. The participants were given a peeled spruce log 2 metres in length, which they could sculpt, glue, nail and decorate as they wished. The winners of the totem pole competition were Margit Toivonen and Elina Vänttinen with their totem pole called “Primadonna of Pruukinraitti”.
