World Straw Arts Day 2014

In 2010, at the Fifth International Straw Festival held in Lutsk, Ukraine, the participants from ten countries felt a unifying day of celebrating this versatile art form should be established.  August 1 was chosen to be that day.  The following images of original straw art designs by CSAG members, as well as guest artists from around the globe, are in celebration of this rather unique art form and the day set aside to recognize it.
