Festival goers will also be able learn tips and tricks from Mr Darby at a number of workshops thanks to the sponsorship of Iluka Resources.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the community was captivated with last year’s creation.

“Tim did an amazing job of producing the Point Moore Lighthouse and the HMAS Sydney II Memorial at last year’s WoW Fest and we can’t wait to see what he creates this weekend,” he said.

“Those attending this weekend’s festivities will also be able to participate in a number of free workshops as well as a masterclass.

“This is just one of the many family-friendly activities happening at WoW Fest.”

The sand sculpture and workshops will be taking place near Dome Café on the Geraldton Foreshore on the Saturday from 10am – 12pm in the morning and 1pm – 3pm in the afternoon.

Those wanting to take their skills to the next level can take part in the masterclass on Sunday from 10am – 12pm.

The City of Greater Geraldton would like to thank Iluka Resources for their support of this exciting element.
