Art Dayz - Creating a Labyrinth in the Sand

24 July 2021

Details

Exmouth artist Anna Fitzgerald has invited sand artist Paul Burton and storyteller Jaz Brown for a family friendly art activity creating a labyrinth in the sand.

Sand artist Paul Burton will give an introduction labyrinths - their history, purpose and production. You will then design and draw a labyrinth with him and adorn it with shells, seaweed or beach plastic. A labyrinth's purpose is to create mindfulness and connection. At 4pm the public is invited to witness the labyrinth and enjoy a performance by storyteller Jaz Brown. Please note a photographer/filmmaker will be present.

Time:11am

£10* per bubble of up to 4 people. Limited to 8 places (2 bubbles). Booking essential. Please confirm if your bubble is more than 4.

This workshop could take up to 4 hours, so please bring lunch/refreshments.Children 12+ must be supervised. Attendees need to be flexible, fast and fit. Spades and rakes will be provided but it would help if attendees bring their own. 

Where to meet: Abode of Love, Exmouth seafront (there are steps off the main road down to the seafront bays - look out for our flags).
