I'll show you how to make sacred geometric shapes and then we'll work on a design. Upon completion, we'll take photos from the cliffs, and reflect on this meditation/art experience. Don't worry about mistakes as this is a uniquely non-destructive and renewable art form and you'll find the whole experience a liberating one! This review sums up pretty well what I aim for: "After inspiring us with some of his own incredible designs, we couldn't wait to get started and headed down to the beach to get creative! When we got down to the beach Bill explained the golden ratio... he showed us how to use different tools and positioning to make perfect large circles by using just a pole, and how to start building up a design from a collection of circles...it’s quite unbelievable how many shapes/patterns you can make from circles! We learnt how to create the Yin Yang symbol, seed and flower patterns, geometric shapes, and how to get different textures from the tools….the design possibilities are really quite endless."
I'm an experienced beach sand art teacher who likes to help people unlock their hidden talents. Beach sand art is a fun way of doing that. We're all learning, and I'm learning too... about repeating patterns, sacred geometry, mandalas and how to create amazing shapes in the sand! I'm the creative director at www.facebook.com/northcornwallart/ so get ideas at my site but feel free to bring your own!
Sand art materials including circle makers and rakes. Tea or coffee and a chat afterwards in a nearby cafe.
We have to work with the tides, sand conditions and weather so we'll probably draw on the low tide sands at Barry Island. Frequent trains from Cardiff take about half an hour to get here and the beach is just by the train station! If you would prefer a remoter Welsh beach this can be arranged beforehand.
Working on the beach in the pouring rain in winter is not always that much fun so I'll be in contact if the weather is going to make the beach unpleasant! We have to work with the tides too but please wear sensible footwear for the beach and bring enough layers to keep you warm.
