About Tarmo

I am a visual artist drawing inspiration from the Rauma town’s lace history and culture. By studies I am a master craftsperson and a master of educational sciences. In addition to art I work as a university lecturer in craft education. My academic home is University of Turku.

Bobbin lace making caught me in 2005 and ever since it has been my passion that takes more rounds every year that comes. I live in Rauma, Finland, with my wife, daughter and cat. Writing about myself is not my specialty, so instead I suggest reading something that I didn’t write:
