Qué harás

I will meet you on Kilmurrin Beach. It's a lovely little cove with plenty of parking and easy access. It's ideal for beach art of all kinds. First of all we will discuss the design. I will sometimes have prepared an outline in advance with a stick and sometimes the drawings are completely impromptu. Together we will bring the artwork to life using garden rakes. I sometimes like the group to incorporate stones, shells and seaweed into parts of a design and occasionally I light a fire in a washing machine drum as part of the experience!

Afterwards it’s possible to view and photograph the sand art from a vantage point on the nearby cliff. Weather permitting I will also capture aerial footage using my drone. Now it's time for a cuppa on the shore! I will bring a basket of refreshments. Usually some fruit, nuts and cake and a choice of herbals teas. The whole process takes about three hours but feel free to stay longer. I like to spend some time with the artwork before the tide reclaims the artwork.

Please note; You will be taking my lead on the overall design. As my assistant on the artwork I will offer you a genuine insight into the process I use. This is a very mindful experience. You will be aware your surroundings but you will be immersed in the simple but rewarding act of raking the sand and gathering materials to decorate our masterpiece!

I'm a full time professional artist specialising in environmental art. My family and I run an art school called The Art Hand. It's located in a spectacular region called The Copper Coast in County Waterford, Ireland. The area is designated by UNESCO as a Global Geopark. These days we specialise in Beach Art Experiences for small groups and special sand art commissions.

I'm most passionate about sand art. I create these massive temporary drawings using a garden rake on the beaches that we are so lucky to be surrounded by. It's a very mindful art form. I love being connected with nature in such an intimate way. I’d be delighted to share a sand art experience with you on The Copper Coast.

Donde estarás

Kilmurrin Beach is a lovely little cove on the main coast road. There is plenty of parking and easy access via a wheelchair accessible ramp. It's ideal for beach art, and popular with swimmers and surfers. The views from the adjacent cliff are spectacular. The fauna on the cliff top is unspoilt with a bed of Springy Grass, Sea Pink, Gorse and Montbretia. Also up here don't miss the dramatic blow hole known locally as the Goat's Jail.

We LOVED this experience with Sean at Kilmurrin Cove in County Waterford. He has such a passion for the sand, the sea, the landscape and uses this to inform his design and art. We became part of his team in making this sand art which was a first and also a chance of a lifetime as we hadn't come across the opportunity to partake in something like this before. We were concerned about how the weather might behave but Sean arranges things so that you commence when the tide is going out and it's a rain or shine experience so all you need to do is plan to bring rain gear, suitable footwear and you're sorted. We became engrossed in the collaborative work we were given to do and time felt completely suspended. Sean also built a fire in a portable device he has and as we sat on the beach and had a hot drink and delicious snacks we watched the fire burn and witnessed the rolling waves and mist coming in from the sea as observed the turning of the tide. We loved the whole experience and are going to spread the word. If you're looking for something special to do with a group of friends then I'd highly recommend this and because it's out in nature in the fresh air, COVID issues aren't a concern and you get to be part of the landscape. The knowledge that your creation will dissolve with the incoming tide makes it all the more precious. It's even worth a day trip from anywhere in the country, especially Dublin, as it's only a two hour drive. A very special experience.
