Learning to build sand sculptures the way the professionals do is a great activity for groups of all ages. We teach the ways to make sand ‘stand up’ and the tools used to carve it. Lessons are interactive and hands on. Want to take away a ribbon at your local amateur competition? Take a lesson and learn how to go tall and add special features to your creation!

Lessons are perfect for:

  • Family Reunions & Vacations – Visiting a Southeastern North Carolina beach? Our fun, easy sand sculpting lessons will provide a special memory and a skill that can be enjoyed on all future beach vacations!
  • Birthday Parties – Know someone turning 8 or 80? Bring the party to the beach and learn techniques that others will envy!
  • Couples Date – Looking for something unique and fun to do together? A sand sculpting lesson offers not only an enjoyable time, but can get you ready to compete in area competitions!
  • Wedding Party Outings – Before getting ready for the main event, let your hair down with a great activity that is sure to delight and inspire your friends

Lessons are typically an hour to an hour and a half in length.   The lesson is hands-on and each participant receives tools to use and keep.  I bring and set up everything needed to learn new ways to create sand sculptures.

Lessons are great for all ages children through adults, but we recommend participants be older than 7 years.  Of course, there is no upper age limit!

The cost for up to 6 participants is $125.  Each additional person is $10.  (e.g. a group of 10 would be $165)

We work on all New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender and Onslow county beaches. Contact us to schedule a lesson.

Sand Castle Builders

“Every castle should begin with Sandi!”

This was an experience our family will forever treasure. Sandi was an amazing teacher, and we all can’t wait to hit the sand to make more creations!

We had Sandi come and give our multi-generational family a sand castle building lesson during our visit to North topsail Beach and it was great fun for everyone! From grandparents to our youngest daughter (7) everyone had a great time and learned lots of tips and tricks! Sandi was so good with all of us. She was well-prepared and really had amazing skill. It was a great way for us to spend a morning. Highly recommend!!
