Sand Sculptures

Sand In Your Eye first started making sand sculptures over 15 years ago. We began working at large festivals globally and then moved on to created our own events in the UK and worldwide. We can create anything to suit most budgets. We love to create the new and unseen and every sand sculpture we create is bespoke and hand carved by our expert sculptors.

For more information see our categories below.

Sand in Your Eye came to Edinburgh Zoo to create a summer spectacular to celebrate our centenary, and we couldn’t have been happier with the sand sculpture that won Best In House Event at the Scottish Event Awards.

Exhibition Sand Sculptures

Exhibition sand sculptures are built to impress and be the centre of an event, allowing for strong media attention and publicity. They are usually made over at least five days using more than 20 tonnes of sand, our skills as professional sand sculptors and sometimes heavy machinery.

Demonstration Sand Sculptures

Demonstration sand sculptures are there to engage the public and often support or coincide with a much a larger event. They are usually made with between 10-20 tonnes of sand, but no machines are used and generally the sand is not compacted.

Table Top Sand Sculpture

Table top sculptures are ideally suitable for indoor events where the logistics of getting the sand inside can be challenging. They are usually made with around one tonne of sand.

Pre Carved Sand Sculptures with Delivery

Want a sand sculpture display without the fuss? Leave it to us. We can make tabletop sand sculptures in our studio and then deliver them to your location or event. These portable sculptures are semi permanent if well looked after, our sculpture of Emily Bronte has moved house 3 times and is over 4 years old! A great value option for those who would like to keep their sculpture longer. These sculptures are subject to a 6 week lead time.

Habitat Creation

Working with the RSPB, Sand In Your Eye have engineered artificial sand banks to create a natural habitat for the Sand Martin to live in, and have the capacity to design a similar environment for Kingfishers. So far we have been extremely pleased with the results, with nearly 200 Sand Martins now nesting in a bank in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Since the birth of Sand In Your Eye, nearly 12 years ago, sand sculpture has been at the heart of everything we do. This sculpture was particularly emotive. Take a look at our other films too on our gallery page.
