Welcome to Sandworld
Closed for the Winter. Re-opening 4 April 2014 – COME AND SEE US!
SANDWORLD in Weymouth – returns for an exciting fourth season in 2014 with a new theme “BOOKS & AUTHORS” . It really will be “Literally Sand” expect to see amazingly detailed sculptures with something for all age and interest groups, created by some of the most imaginative and creatively talented sculptors in the world, brought to your doorstep.
Sandworld is Weymouth’s first sand sculpture festival, and one of only a handful ever held in the UK. Opened in 2011 by Weymouth “Sandman” Mark Anderson, and David Hicks, an aspiring sand sculptor and good friend of Mark.
Unable to hold the event on the beach, it was hard to find a suitable site until this site was “discovered” at the end of 2010, and in just 3 short months, the derelict and overgrown site was transformed into what you see today.
Our aim is to bring the best sand artists from around the world to your doorstep, so that you can see what we have seen on our travels, and share the universal joy that is sand sculpting!
We also undertake commissions, and last year we were engaged by LOCOG to create three sculptures for the beach volleyball event in Horseguards Parade for London 2012.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Children will have lots of fun when they visit seeing how many Wall-E’s they can find hiding in the displays? Tell us when you return to the shop and they could win a sweet treat.
