Straw Art Festival is an international event which traditionally happens in a different country every two years. This event aims to present the diversity, multiple meanings, different interpretations of straw handicrafts, and to promote sharing of knowledge and skills. This year the Festival will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania – all the enthusiasts, craftsmen and amateurs of straw art are meeting here!

The festival gathers straw art masters from 12 countries, including Belarus, China, Estonia, Hungary, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Serbia, Switzerland, Ukraine, the USA!

The participants of the Festival will not only participate in the straw art workshops but also they will travel around Lithuania, listen for the lectures, watch documentaries and participate in guided tours. More than 40 Lithuanian and foreign handicraftsmen will share their knowledge during the Festival. They create various pieces out of straw: applications, pictures, straw gardens, accessories, souvenirs, flowers, hats, trays, etc.

During the Festival Lithuanian handicraftsmen will teach the participants to bind various straw handicrafts, including traditional straw gardens, in different ways and to make elements of straw gardens: birds, suns, butterflies, etc.

We invite to register everyone who would like to get familiar with unique handicraft techniques, learn different crafts and to challenge themselves in these delicate arts.
