Sandcastle Building Lessons

Who needs help learning how to make a sandcastle, right?!

You might be surprised to learn that there's a better way. Flipping buckets of sand over is fun and all but have you ever wondered how to make an intricate, original, and *sturdy* sandcastle?

My name is Emerson and I've been a professional sandcastle builder for over 10 years. Join me every Saturday this summer at Stewart Beach and learn the fundamentals of sand sculpture (Yes, it's sculpture!) We'll cover the basics of making strong structures and how to carve them.

Free sandcastle lessons are available at Stewart Beach on Saturdays at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. No reservation necessary. You can find me by the water's edge, straight down from the pavilion. Private lessons are also available by appointment throughout the week at the beach of your choice.
