90 minute B!Creative WORKSHOP

SAND Workshop & Installation

A flexible hands-on, all-ages, all-abilities workshop.

SAND is the first in a series of child-centred, play-based workshops that empower children aged 2 - 10 years to explore and test the scale of sand play and sand installations during an all-ages, all-abilities, 90-minute workshop.

Each workshop is a happy and calm experience where children and carers collaborate as they engage with onsite installations and materials to create make-and-take art projects.

There’s no right or wrong here!

Workshops spark joy, curiosity and laughter as participants are empowered to explore the environment around them through storytelling, movement and art-making.
