The Work Display Area

In the Porthan’s park, on the work display area, the craftsmen present their medieval methods. You can follow from the side how jewellery, knives, tablet weaving and drinking horns are made from traditional materials. The masters gladly answer the questions from the curious. If you find an object to be in your liking, do not worry, most of them will be on sale.

The word display area provides an opportunity to peek into the everyday life of the Medieval times. Most of the utility items and other materials were self-made. The rumour tells, that the merchants from the Southern coast of the Baltic Sea are planning a trip to Turku to bring and present items from their homelands to those who are inquisitive.
