The day session will be an opportunity to talk to Emma and other students about  your studies and observe land artists at work. The artists, and members of the  public, will be creating patterns and structures using sand, pebbles and other beach finds.

The artist, and organiser, James Brunt has suggested that we could help him start  off a community creation, on the beach, from 12 noon. By doing this we will have a  mini workshop with him, pick up tips and be able to ask questions.

You can also go off and make individual pieces before the tide advances and  removes them.

You might also wish to take photographs and talk to the artists that are participating  in the event.

I attended as a member of the public last year and it was great fun. The following  day the event moves on to the gardens of Sewerby Hall, just a mile or so away. So if  you want to stay on, or come back the following day, you can make a weekend of it.  The Sunday will be untutored. You can get to Sewerby Hall from North Beach by  foot, or on the dinky Land Train. Sewerby Hall has lovely gardens with views over  the sea and there is a café there. The Sunday part of the public event will involve  creating land art from found woodland items such as leaves, petals, seedheads and  twigs.

Additional info

Bridlington is on the East coast in the East Riding of Yorkshire and has a train station. The event is on North Beach and very nearby there are cafes and toilets.  There is a ramp onto the beach but the beach has soft sand and, depending on the  weather, many chalk pebbles of various sizes. There are groins on the beach and a  slight slope. We will obviously need to be mindful of the tide. The weather can be very variable, even on the same day, so prepare for all eventualities!

If you go to my Instagram page,

@dremmapowell you will find quite a few photos showing just how beautiful the coast is in these parts. I usually walk on South Beach which is just on the other side  of the harbour to North Beach.

The event is open to all students across disciplines but numbers are limited to 12 so please sign up quickly.

This event has a group. You’re welcome to join the group once you register for the event.
