Our history in short

Puustellin Tuki ry was founded in 1979 by social counselor Eila Ollikainen, associate professor Erkki Saari, artisan teacher Sirkka Rautala, and their associates. With help from Finland’s Slot Machine Association (RAY), Puustellin Työkylä was established in 1982.

At first, Puustellin Työkylä’s functioning focused mainly on weaving but over time Puustelli has broadened it to various services. The wood workshop was established in 1990.
