Sand Sculpture Courses and Experience Days
Come to our indoor 12 tonne sand pit and enjoy learning how to make sand sculptures or anything that sparks your imagination. Have a taster session, an experience day or a full course to really learn how to sculpt and take those skills to the beach or other mediums.
Photographs will be taken throughout the sessions which we will share.
During the 2 hours sand session you will start off by learning how to engineer the sand so that it sticks together and use the tools of the trade. Using your new skills you will them make a sculpture of your own or a giant one together with the other sandy folks.
This is for those that would like to go further with their sculpture. Learn how to compact and engineer the sand and make an abstract sculpture. Then make a giant sculpture together using the rules or proportion so that you have the building blocks of being able to replicate an object. This is suitable for adults and children from 14 years old accompanied by an adult.
