Young people and those who are young at heart can partake in a FREE summer sand sculpture experience like no other between 2–8 January 2019. Kindle a love of the beach through shared creative artmaking led by Master Sculptor Peter Redmond.
The District Council of Streaky Bay will collaborate with Sandstorm Events to deliver the innovative Ingrained: Ephemeral Eco Art Project across 6 days of sand sculpting fun for locals and visitors to the region.
Sandstorm Events is Australia’s leading Sand Sculpting Company located in Melbourne and for the past 15 years have created over 3,000 sand sculptures of exceptional quality and beauty for the Australian public to view through their annual large scale sand sculpting exhibitions , have worked for over 350 corporate clients including Disney, DreamWorks, Air New Zealand, Uncle Toby’s, Greenpeace and Universal Pictures and held hands on school holiday programs for councils and shopping centres all throughout Australia.
Participants will have a sensory experience like no other and kindle a love of the beach through shared creative artmaking led by Master Sculptor Peter Redmond.
With a background in graphic design and illustration, Peter started carving sand in 2006 after discovering a love for the art medium. Since 2006 Peter has honed his skills and has worked steadily around Australia on over 100 Sand Sculpting jobs including working at festivals, events, shopping centres and smaller corporate promotions. Peter’s easy-going nature and passion for sand sculpting makes him a natural to pass his skills onto the next generation of sand sculptors in Australia.
Peter Redmond, Master Sculptor says “It never ceases to amaze me; the delight people get from being exposed to our creative art form. Sand Sculpting has the ability to enthral people of all ages and all backgrounds. I am blessed to have a vocation that l am truly passionate about and am looking forward to creating sand magic in Streaky Bay this coming summer as part of VISIBLE.”
The project will be delivered at the historic old Campbell’s Landing site, Eyre Avenue right on the spectacular Streaky Bay foreshore.
