Lasistudio Mafka & Alakoski
A number of glass studios operate within Riihimäki's Old Glassworks area. One of these is Lasistudio Mafka&Alakoski, which was founded by glass artists Marja Hepo-aho and Kari Alakoski. Located between the idyllic old factory milieu and beautiful Hyttikorttelin (former workers' residential quarter), the glass studio offers the visitor a unique glimpse into the world of glass art. Visitors can watch accomplished glass artists in action. In the Gallery shop, visitors can see the artists' work or even book a separate theme evening, where they can make their own glass creations.
