Arts and crafts groups at service centres

Arts and crafts groups offer an opportunity to make objects for decoration and practical uses by hand with different materials and techniques.

Arts and crafts groups at service centres offer creative activities for everyone interested in crafts. You can work by yourself or take part in guided courses.

We can provide the materials for a charge, or you can obtain them yourself according to a list provided by the instructor. Please ask the service centres' information desk about the groups.

You need a service centre card to access the service. You can get a card free of charge from the service centres' information desk.

Do you already have a service centre card?

You can get a free service centre card from the service centres' information desk if you are retired or unemployed living in Helsinki. 

When applying for the service centre card, you can prove your retirement with an earnings-related pension card or a pension or benefit decision. If you are currently not working and you are registered as an unemployed job seeker, you can apply for a service centre card on the basis of unemployment. You can print out a certificate of the validity of your job seeking from the TE Service’s E-services (webpage in Finnish)(Link leads to external service)
