You could easily walk past this little shop with its corrugated iron walls and roof! It's situated right by the roundabout a Bakau craft market and next door to Saffie j restaurant.
The shop sells sand paintings which are I believe are all crafted on site, it also sells wooden carvings and paintings.
Our daughter first visited last year during a power cut but was invited inside to sit down and have a go at sand art for herself. She spent an hour making a very small picture by torch light.
This year she took lessons during the two weeks we were there. She learned all aspects of sand art and even how to dye the Sand!
She made a lovely picture during the time she spent there and also made a friend in Sheikh who was her teacher and is the son of the owner.
We paid 150 (£3) per hour and while she was busy with the sand we spent the time she was in there watching the world go by from Saffie j next door.
The day before we came home we were each given a bag of gifts by Sheikh and a lovely card. She was also given everything she needs to practice at home (including the different coloured sand hat she had prepared with him).
Please stop and have a look if you're passing this place, the amount of work that goes into these sand paintings is amazing. Have a couple of lessons and learn for yourself how it is done, it's worth every penny.
