From Urpola Manor we head to beloved ceramist and professor Heljä Liukko-Sundströms artistic ateljé – Ateljé Heljä. This 80 year old artist is still full of inspiration and joy. In her ateljé is a noteworthy collection of her artwork, which have been displayed all the way in New York, Tokyo and Bristol.

12:30 pm Lunch at Cafe Lasikello in the old Humppila glass factory which was established in 1952 by Helander brothers and worked in this property from 1971.
