STICK IN THE SAND
for beach lovers
Spreading art, encouraging space, and keeping plastic off the sand one windbreak at a time since 2020.
Enthusiasm is the keyword for the ethos driving Stick In The Sand. Enthusiasm for sustainable living and materials, for space to enjoy our favourite places and for beautiful accessible art.
Deb, the owner and maker at Stick In The Sand, is a long time advocate of sustainable living and combining art with practicality. Watching people react to the sun shining through the different colours on the windbreaks is one of her favourite things.
Deb says 'It was sitting on the beach trying to write my last book in the series with the wind blowing my pages and sketches about that prompted me to make my own windbreak.' Orders have been coming in since that moment...
We handmake every single windbreak in our little workshop; dyeing, sewing, measuring and cutting the organic canvas and even hand-pointing the eucalyptus poles.
The dying process ensures that each windbreak is completely unique, the colours may be the same but the pattern will be one-of a kind.
The various depths of dye applied turn the canvas into a kaleidoscope of colour when the sun shines through making the windbreaks truly beautiful on our white Cornish sands.
Based down on The Lizard peninsula, we are surrounded by beautiful coves and with a few sprawling beaches nearby, the thick canvas creates a beautiful and easily spotted land-marker in amongst the plastic stripes often dominating the sand and far too often discarded at the end of a long day on the beach.
With our windbreaks we hope to make people smile and to also give a sense of home to beach camps. We are all about happy faces for happy places.
