- Day 2 — Workshop by the sea
Workshop on the beach for the whole family
What’s under the sand?
Where does the grain of sand washed onto beach by the waves come from?
Clods of earth, clay and silt, mudflats, dunes and sand – the ancient story of how this landscape was built up.
During the workshop, we’ll find out the answers to these and many other questions. The route includes a short walk in which you will see much, hear many stories and make sculptures out of sand and beach materials.
