For all ages
Learn the basics of getting sand to stand! You will build towers & walls -- concentrating on building but with an introduction to carving using common items everyone has or can easily find. Learn all the tricks and skills you need to build a great castle.
Note: This lesson is currently available ONLY at access #16.
Older Kids - Adults - Corporate Teams
Whether you are a corporation or a family, working together for a common goal is a desirable outcome -- especially when it happens on the beach! If you have an energetic group that wants to build something BIG, this is the activity for you. We will meet you on the beach with a cart full of equipment to help you build something amazing - including a message, name or logo if desired. We strongly recommend that you take one of the other lessons prior. Expect to sweat!
I'll help your group make it, or I can create a customized sculpture just for you -- for a more polished finish. Christmas Tree; sandy snowman or a New Year's odometer are just a few of our specialities... just hit a "Reserve" Button and tell me your vision!
Kids & Adults
Grandma is turning 80! Mom & Dad are celebrating a big anniversary! It's a bachelorette beach party! Wherever a group of beachfun-lovers gather is a good time and place to the rest of the sculpture by jumping in whenever they feel comfy doing so. End result will be a finished billboard sculpture, perfect for a group photo.
The same lesson compressed into 1 hour. Best for smaller groups (1-3) or students with shorter attention spans - we'll cover as much as we can...
have more fun on the beach forever....!
Families and Friends
Your instructor will demonstrate basic softpack, hard pack and hand stacking techniques, then show you how to combine these structures into castles. If you are inspired, jump in and give building a try! Then together we will carve doors, windows and winding staircases; walls & battlements -- ending up with a great photo-op!
Add $10 for each additional person
We will be happy to meet you anywhere within the city limits of SPI - or meet us at "Sandcastle Beach" - access #15, 16, 17 or the Butterfly Garden access - for a $30 Discount!
For $50 and up, we can add a professionally-carved custom billboard to your
castle. It can be a simple birthday, anniversary, graduation message -- all the way up
to a complex logo. (Paragraphs are discouraged. ;-)
Older Kids - Adults -
This is a revved-up version of our 101 class - only bigger, better and faster! This is a good choice if you have had some experience with the techniques we teach in 101 or T&T -- but if you are physically fit and quick learning, you may want to jump right up to our 201 class.
Do you have an important question to pose your beloved? This may be the lesson for you...
We will meet at Sandcastle Beach for a lesson. We will work together to build a pretty castle and then you will take your sweetie in search of shells to decorate the castle while I will quick-carve the proposal itself. Includes a handful of rose petals and I will shoot a video of the reveal as well as some post-proposal pics.
A unique way to do something you will (hopefully) only have to do once -- but I am also happy to have a completed sculpture finished and waiting for you anywhere on the Island. More info...
