A sand sculpture is, as it were, an adult sand castle, which dates from the time of the Egyptians. We know better than anyone how much fun it used to be to build a fantastic large castle. During the sand sculpture workshop you go back to the old times and make unique creations using sand and water.
A sand sculpture is made with wet sand, so that it is extremely suitable against the wind and other weather influences. By tamping sand, also called “compacts”, you ensure that the sand can harden and cannot move in any direction.
The necessary toolbox for an experienced sand artist consists of a handful of materials. For example, you need a plant sprayer, brush, shovel and special knife to make a beautiful sand sculpture.

What is sand sculpture
Sand sculptures are works of art created by molding sand using various tools. These works of art are often created on beaches, but they can also be created in other locations, such as parks or fairs.
Sand sculptures can be very diverse, from small, simple shapes to large, more complex sculptures. Some artists make sand sculptures of animals, people, buildings or abstract shapes. Others create realistic depictions of famous figures or historical events.
Making a sand sculpture is a time consuming process that requires a lot of patience and precision. The artist starts by choosing the right sand and removing any impurities. The sand is then moistened and pressed into the desired shape. Some artists use molds or molds to shape the sand, while others shape the sand entirely by hand.
Once completed, sand sculptures are often impressive works of art that garner much admiration from the public. Unfortunately, they are temporary, as they will eventually disappear when exposed to the elements. Yet they remain a popular form of art that is appreciated and admired by many people.
