INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION

The Floristry Department is an active participant of the EU projects and has currently submitted two applications to receive financing for student internships and improvement of foreign language skills. The Department is preparing the third application for the development of the 5th level florist training programme due to a constant increase in the need for enhancement of qualification of working florists.

The Department is proud of and appreciates the friendship with such floristry schools as Atelier5 (Switzerland), Smilax (Spain) and Sibirskaya Orchideya (Russia).

The florists of our Centre are constant participants and organisers of Lithuanian floristry events and projects, participants of the Floristry Competition of Lithuanian Vocational Schools “Floristinė virtuvė” (Floristry Kitchen) and winners of the 1st place in 2013 (Kristina-Monika Skliaustytė). On the initiative of vocational teacher Marijus Gvildis, the floristry show “Įkvėpimo naktis” (Inspiration Night) is organised, which attracts the most famous floristry artists to Lithuania, i.e., Peter Hess (Switzerland), Jordi Pascual (Spain), Natalja Zhizhko (Russia), Vadim Kazanskiy (Russia), Roman Steingauer (Russia), Vitaliy Piatakov (Russia). The floristry symposium “Floristinių kultūrų tiltai” (Bridges of Floral Cultures) has been taking place in Šiluva since 2009, during which the blessed approaches of Šiluva are decorated for the Šilinės Feast.
