Promotion in the Baltic countries, three countries in three days!

With help from good colleagues, some luck and some casualty, we got the possibility to meet about 100 persons to tell them about Vea, and specially the International Experimental course and the Soft Land art in Italy.

Our trip started in Estonia, were we, by fortune, got contact with Tarmo, our former student who had a demonstration for florists. He gave us half an hour to promote our school.


In Latvia we had an appointment with the students of Aija, a good colleague, and her student Gunita organized a meeting. Gunita also wanted to take this info to the big meeting for florists in Latvia in March, so more people will hear about Vea.


Lithuania was our last stop, and Sigitas, a friend and colleague, was the primus motor for this meeting at his school. This group was very active asking, and some of them were quite clear that they wanted to start at Experimental floral design. The beginning of August is Holliday time in Lithuania, and high season for flower shops. So maybe they had to wait till next year to organize an eventually participation in the EF study. An idea for us to think about if we could start in September next year, instead of august when the most of Europe has Holliday?

We are very satisfied with this trip and we really hope that some of this people will be our students next year or the year after.
