V&A World Beach Project

Devised by artist Sue Lawty in association with the V&A, the World Beach Project is a global art project open to anybody, anywhere, of any age, building on the experience many of us have had on holiday of making patterns on beaches and shorelines.

I was inspired to participate by reading about the project in Selvedge Magazine. I just finished a certificate in Fiberarts and am traveling with my husband. This was a great way to participate in art making. I loved looking at all the beautiful stones on the beach. When I went back two days later, someone had reworked the design. Such fun.
