Welcome to our hidden gem in Copenhagen! As you step into our quaint workshop nestled in the heart of the city, you're greeted by the enchanting aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the warmth of Danish hospitality. At Ugly Duckli, we're passionate about preserving Danish heritage, and our weaving paper hearts workshop is a testament to that dedication. Inspired by the timeless tales of Hans Christian Andersen, who famously made the oldest woven paper heart for his sweetheart in 1861, we invite you to embark on a journey through the rich tapestry of Danish culture. The workshop begins with a friendly introduction from Rikke, our knowledgeable host, who shares fascinating insights into the history and significance of weaving paper hearts in Danish tradition. As you settle into our cozy space, Felix, our playful cotton dog companion, adds an extra layer of joy to the atmosphere. Whether you're a seasoned crafter or a curious beginner, our workshop is designed to cater to all skill levels. With carefully curated materials, including our own high-quality glazed paper, you'll learn the intricate art of weaving paper hearts with ease and precision. Throughout the two-hour experience, Rikke's passion for sharing Copenhagen's cultural richness shines through as she regales you with captivating stories and anecdotes. From the origins of the weaving technique to its modern-day significance, each tale adds depth to your understanding of Danish heritage. This experience is a rare opportunity to be invited into a private Danish home, where you can immerse yourself in the magic of weaving paper hearts. Located near convenient public transportation hubs like Frederiksberg or Axel Møllers Have metro stations, reaching us is a breeze. Alternatively, embrace the leisurely charm of Copenhagen by cycling through its picturesque streets to our doorstep. As you immerse yourself in the magic of weaving paper hearts, you'll not only create beautiful keepsakes but also forge lasting memories. Every intricate fold and delicate weave tells a story of tradition and affection, weaving together the past and present in a tapestry of Danish charm. Join us at Ugly Duckli for a journey of discovery, creativity, and cultural immersion. Let the art of weaving paper hearts transport you to a world where every moment is filled with wonder and inspiration. A sample testimonial from a different platforms: “I had a wonderful time doing this experience! I was welcomed by the host, Rikke, and her cute dog in a cosy apartment with good coffee and treats. I have learnt how to weave traditional paper heart baskets and I loved to hear about Danish customs and traditions and the author Hans Christian Andersen. This is definitely an experience to try if you want to do something different from the usual mainstream activities while in Copenhagen. Highly recommended!” – Ludovica, Abruzzo, Italy
