About Textile Magician Jenni Vanhanen - the Doer

I became a Textile Artisan after working as IT Engineer for over 20 years. I have combined these two careers together and got a Rya Rug design program developed by myself. I have got nominated as Artisan of The Year in Finland because of freshing up the traditional handcraft. As I am also a professional teacher I love to share my knowledge and I have a strong international focus.
