Albany Beach | 1 Buchanan St,, Albany, CA

Sand globes are just that – spheres made out of sand and water. It takes five minutes to learn the technique and it usually takes beginners about 10 minutes to make a globe. At first it seems like you are defying or exploring the laws of physics, but then a feeling of tactile and visual delight takes over as you create great big globes from sand and water, throwing them in the air to liquify and shape them.
At this event at Albany Beach, art-in-nature artist Zach Pine will teach everyone in sight how to make sand globes. Then participants will create a spontaneously evolving art installation on the beach.
Some participants will make moving creations with people and globes. Non-globe creativity involving sand and people is also encouraged of course.
Please Note: Use this map and don’t just follow your GPS to Albany Beach (this often leads to a dead end). This is an off-leash dog beach. Arrive anytime and join in. All ages are welcome.
Zach Pine invented his technique for making sand globes in 2000, and has taught over a thousand people how to make them, and now they are being made a worldwide. The globes have an evocative “planetary” quality, and the process of making them soon becomes a catalyst for communal fun and games.
