Sand Art Experiences

This is a unique opportunity to take part in one of Sean’s massive artworks on Kilmurrin Beach in Waterford. This can be booked individually or by small groups up to 6 people at a cost of €60 per person. Sean will offer a genuine insight into the process involved. This is a very mindful experience. You will be aware of the tide and your surroundings but you’ll be immersed in the simple but rewarding act of raking the sand.

An adjustable garden rake is provided along with a basket of refreshments. Participants will also be emailed a special souvenir high resolution image of the completed artwork for them to get printed. Large poster prints of the artworks look great. For full details and bookings please click here; https://www.airbnb.ie/experiences/1224015

Sand Art Workshops for larger groups

We regularly facilitate themed sand art workshops for private groups on beaches. Temporary artworks are created collaboratively with garden rakes and lots of teamwork!

These activities suit everything from family reunions, birthday parties, hen parties and school tours to business outings and corporate team building events. So whatever the occasion why not try something a bit different.

Teamwork is central to these fun and rewarding workshops. There is also a unique piece of art to show for all the exertions, even if it is only temporary!

All that remains are the photos and videos as the tide claims all in the end.

SEVEN. Guided Sand Art Experience for Comeraghs Wild Festival - SEVEN. Take a 90 second journey with us along this collaborative sand art maze that was created on Kilmurrin Cove as part of the Comeraghs Wild Festival yesterday. It took us 4 hours to complete the artwork, just in time! As you can see in the video we made one final procession as the tide reclaimed the sand. Along the way each participant explained to their gathered colleagues about the significance of their individual contributions to the artwork. We’d like to call this piece ‘Seven’ as there was seven main ‘sacred’ spaces along the pathway in which we created symbolic artworks using offerings of gathered feathers, rocks, shells, seaweed, bamboo sticks, tangled kelp and pebbles. The artwork was created by Orna, Lindsay, Eileen, Martina, Geraldine, Agnes, Anne Marie, MJ, Alfie, John and Michael. The experience was guided by Sean Corcoran. Thanks to Marie, Ella and Cathal for also assisting us. Our Picnic was prepared by Miranda. Bernadette was the coordinator from the Comeraghs Wild Festival. We really enjoyed this, well done all.

7 Days of Sand Art in 60 Seconds! - Here's some highlights from our participation in the annual sand art festival in #Ballybunion, #NorthKerry. Most of our artworks were located on #LadiesBeach, with 2 of them on #NunsBeach. We barely ventured onto #MensBeach! It was a wonderful week. Oh and we broke 2 world records! We were joined by 207 children and their teachers from the local schools making this we believe the most people to make sand art on a beach at the same time AND the most circles that have ever been drawn on a beach. We believe that 8280 circles were drawn, an average of 40 circles per person. We used wild bamboo sticks and rakes and all 207 of us had a tug o' war match afterwards! Next year it is intended to officially break the world record with the Guinness Book of Records in attendance to verify the figures. Special thanks to Joe, Pixie, Grainne, Mary Chris, Jamie, John in the Bunker, Patsy and Tommy and the extended O'Gorman family. Great to catch up with Matt, Sara and Charlie and thanks to all the sponsors. 4 teams this year, #Cork #Kerry #Waterford #Limerick. Meet you next year Helena! Going International next year!

World's Eye - We facilitated this environmental artwork today with TY students from Newtown School (Ireland) and ADN Centro Educativo (Spain). Planet Earth on fire at the centre of the eye was created (in the rain) with kelp and rocks on Bunmahon Beach. The design was developed during a series of workshops at Newtown School under the guidance of environmental artist Sean Corcoran and staff teacher Karen Keogh. Later the sun shone and we moved to Kilmurrin Cove to write a special message to the Erasamus+ students who return to Spain soon. #OneWorld #FridaysForFuture #Teamwork #StandUpAndBeCounted #ClimateAction

One - 29 transition year students devised and created this instalation during a day of environmental brainstorming at Newtown School facilitated by Sean Corcoran and Karen Keogh. We used the grit track in the school grounds to sketch out the ideas that we've been discussing in previous workshops in the classroom. We previewed the aerial footage afterwards and each participant wrote a word (or words) in response as follows;

One
Unite Together 
Collaboration
Teamwork
Friends
Communicate
Life
One World
We’re Stronger Together
Use Public Places for Art
Mental Health Awareness
No Contamination 
Save the Turtles
When we stand with each other, for each other, we blossom
The World will keep Spinning
Everyone is different but we all have something in common
Strength in Numbers
Really Savage!
We all matter
Art brings us together 
Collaboration
Nice, Pretty, Cool
Don’t walk in someone else’s shadow
Our Planet is Dying 
Let your actions speak
In the chaos of life, find your sanctuary
Community Spirit
Mental Health
Uniqueness in Newtown
It’s OK not to feel OK
In numbers there is Strength and Unity
Children Circling into Problems
Natural Resources
Unite

After this full team exercise we broke into 6 smaller groups to design and present 6 different environmental concepts scratched into the grit. A final idea was chosen by a panel of judges to be created by the full group on a class outing to the beach soon. What better way to make an environmental statement than by using environmental art!

The project to date has been more about trying to gel the group together as a team than it has been about the resulting artworks. Allowing everyone the space to have a voice and to feel part of a genuine collaborative process.
