The Straw Shop celebrates straw art all year long. Every August we celebrate the medium by artists from around the globe. We invite all straw artisans to participate in this annual event.
But why World Straw Arts Day? In 2010 straw masters from around the world attended a conference in Libov, Ukraine. Representing 10 countries, the masters voted a day to be set aside to acknowledge and celebrate straw art. August 1 was the day decided. The Straw Shop dedicates a month a year to celebrate World Straw Arts Day.
The below images come from all over the world and represent different expressions found in straw art today. That’s something worth celebrating!
