Making sand globes feels like magic. Someone said, "It's like making a sand castle in the air." Creating sand art and playing with sand globes brings happiness, and connects us with the earth and each other.

At this event, I'll teach everyone to make sand globes (and encourage them to teach others!) Then, as in all my collaborative create-with-nature events, we'll make a spontaneously evolving art installation on the beach. Non-globe creativity involving sand and people is also encouraged of course! We'll also play cooperative sand globe games like "pass the peas" and "large sand globe collider," and invent new ones.

I've been refining my technique for making sand globes since 2000, and have taught over a thousand people how to make them. Learning to make your first sand globe takes about 5 minutes; it usually takes beginners about ten minutes to make a grapefruit-sized globe.

Sand globe making is spreading over the earth through the project Earth in Your Hands - Sand Globes Worldwide.

By design, the event offers opportunities for everyone to participate and join in however they wish. See the GGNRA Accessibility Guide for more info including free beach wheelchair reservations and ASL interpretation.
