General Information

Steve Machell has been sculpting unique creations out of sand in Byron Bay and around the world for over twenty years and offers a variety of exciting options for kids birthday parties, workshops and more.



I start the day by building a feature sculpture before everyone arrives to wow them. To get the workshop started I do a quick demonstration showing a few different techniques on how to work with the sand. Then I help everyone create their own unique sand sculptures. The skills learnt on the day will remain with you for life, you’ll never look at sand the same way again!

I run regular workshops in Byron Bay. Check my Facebook page for times and  details.

Also available for private bookings (minimum group of ten).


Birthday parties

For birthday parties I build a feature sculpture before the party with a personalised birthday message. When the guests arrive, I do a quick demonstration on how to work with the sand, before helping everyone build some awesome sand sculptures. Fun for all ages, a great idea for kid’s birthday parties where the parents can get involved in the fun too.



Sand sculptures provide the perfect backdrop for a beach wedding. A popular choice with couples is a castle with love heart windows and pairs of sea critters throughout. The choice is yours, with any personal touches or themes welcomed.



Looking for a unique and unforgettable way to pop the question? Doesn’t get more romantic than a candlelit sand sculpture.


Festivals and Shows

I can bring the beach to your festival or show. As well as building the feature sculpture, I run a kid’s workshop and play space that is open the whole time. Always a crowd pleaser and a great photo opportunity.
