Sand sculpting at W Maldives

Maldives Promotion House – W Retreat & Spa Maldives amplifies its beach experience with the announcement of its upcoming ‘W HAPPENINGS’ where guests are invited to build iconic sand sculptures with endless views of the Indian Ocean.

Sand sculpture is no longer a children’s only activity. As the sun shines over the Indian Ocean, Peter Redmond, an Australian Sand Sculpture artist will be assisting guests at the Retreat to create and customize their very own sand art. Equipped with sculpting tools Peter will perform daily at Fire beach from the 6th to 10th April 2013. Guest at the Retreat can stop by for sand sculpting workshops while Peter reveals the art of sculpting.

With a background in Graphic design and illustration, Peter Redmond’s passion for sculpture came at young age while competing with his brothers on who would finish the first sand sculpture on Frankston Beach, Australia. Peter stated that the only difference today was the size of the sculptures as they are now bigger. On a more personal note, Peter loves surfing, playing basketball, and painting.

Ku the retreat’s W Insider says “This is a once in a lifetime experience. In our picture perfect tropical playground surrounded by white sand beaches, guests at the Retreat can reveal the child in them and participate in a Sand Sculpture competition. As a true W Insider I recommend guests to participate in all the workshops with Peter before sculpting their own creations.”

As the workshop draws to a close on 11th April, W Maldives will reveal Peter Redmond’s final work, and will select the best sculpture amongst the retreats guests. To enjoy a small preview of the final work follow W Maldives on the social media channels @WMaldives on Twitter and
