FOR TRAVELLERS (IN ENGLISH)
Saagasi Events ("Your Saga" in Finnish) specialises in providing story-led experiences which draw from history, fairy tales and fantasy - in short from the stories we as humans have always told and continue to tell each other.
I am passionate about the stories we as humans have always told and continue to tell one another. For years, I have immersed myself in Nordic folklore, and love sharing their wisdom with others. I have a Master's Degree in English Philology, with a special focus on mythology, ethics and anthropology.
I am also a long-time RPG geek, having played my first game almost 15 years ago. I want to spread the joy of table-top role-playing games to new audiences and new groups of people, whatever their background.
Spirits of Hearth and Home - Tonttu in Finnish Folklore
New to Finland? Do you wish you could understand the Finnish way of life a little better? As humans, we are deeply influenced by the stories we tell one another. Come along and hear some of the stories that makes Finns who they are!
During the experience you will learn something new about the role of tonttus (Finnish spirits of the household) in local folklore, customs, and the Finnish mindset. You will also craft your own tonttu keepsake out of felt and other natural materials. After creating our tonttus, we will welcome them into the world with a short ceremony.
All this will take place over a cozy cup of a hot beverage of your choice in a magical and athmospheric fantasy tavern (Tarinoiden taverna), a short walk from centre of Oulu.
