California Coastal Cleanup Day & Sand Globes Workshop | Stinson Beach
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Stinson Beach | Marine Way, Stinson Beach, CA
Join in California Coastal Cleanup Day, and show your love and care for Stinson Beach. Everything you need for the cleanup will be provided, but if possible you’re encouraged to bring your own gardening gloves and waste containers, as part of the effort to reduce waste.
All participants must sign a waiver, and it will speed things along to bring a signed waiver with you. Find printable waiver forms and more info here. Bring a lunch and stay for sand globe making after the cleanup.
At this event, environmental artist Zach Pine will teach everyone to make sand globes (and encourage them to teach others) Then, as in all his collaborative create-with-nature events, you’ll make a spontaneously evolving art installation on the beach. Non-globe creativity involving sand and people is also encouraged of course. They’ll also play cooperative sand globe games like “pass the peas” and “large sand globe collider,” and invent new ones.
Pine has been refining his technique for making sand globes since 2000 and has 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.
