Luova Puu Ateljee Gallery Café
The "Creative Tree" art gallery and café
Luova Puu welcomes all visitors!
We are located in the heart of Savo, Lapinlahti and are open during the summer season from June to August and also during December as a Christmas boutique. Otherwise we are open for groups with resevations. Don't be afraid to contact us!
Luova Puu is an unique bohemian destination that was founded by the wood artist Raija Weisenberg in 2004. The town of Lapinlahti reconstructed the property and it was made into Raija's wood art studio, gallery for changing exhibitions of the local artists, café and handicraft boutique. Luova Puu also has a very beautiful "Paradise Sauna" which many visitors have enjoyed the authentic warm refreshing experience of a Finnish sauna.
Unfortunately in 2014 Raija Weisenberg passed away after a long fight of cancer. Her daughter Hannah Weisenberg continued Raija's work and creation of the Luova Puu. She is an artist of ceramics and also teaches yoga. During the summer seoson we have many cultural events and workshops.
