Sand artists expected to wow thousands at Black Rock
5:50pm Friday 8th February 2013 in News
You would need more than a bucket and spade to create this sensational sand sculpture.
More than 20 world class artists will transform Black Rock in Brighton from April until November.
Thousands of tonnes of sand will be turned into eye-catching sculptures with 100,000 visitors expected. There will be sand sculpture workshops, live demonstrations, guided tours, a children’s sand pit, café and more.
Graffiti artists will also be welcome with special workshops for budding spray painters.
Artist Nicola Wood, from the CBBC show Deadly Art, will be one of the sculptors on show.
She said: “Brighton is such a vibrant cultural city and I can’t wait to work with local artists and to bring Black Rock to life. Not only is it a fantastic family event but there will also be something for visitors of all ages and backgrounds.”
Alec Messchaert, the event’s co-organiser, said: “We want to work with local businesses, schools and organisations.”
