Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
Join us for the first fermented foods club at Ptarmigan! This is intended to be a monthly event where people will bring fermented foods that they have made to share with each other. Foods can be traditional or nontraditional, but will all involve zymurgy in some form. Just bring something that you have made: sourdough bread, kefir, kim chi, sauerkraut, beer, wine, natto ...
This is purely a social gathering but we can discuss techniques, tips, and most importantly eat eat eat. We will consider Sandor Ellix Katz's WIld Fermentation book to be our bible.
Please register and let us know what you'll be bringing!
