The 2011 London Ice Sculpting Festival gets underway today, with artists from all around the world showing off their coolness in the centre of Canary Wharf. Running from 13th – 15th January, the public can head along to gaze at the various wonderful sculptures created before their very eyes.
Two timed competitions judged by the public, “Peddle Power” and “Love London” will be held over the two days, where teams from around the globe will battle it out to win the Public Choice Award.
If you fancy giving ice sculpting a try, you can dig in with a free twenty minute master class supervised by an experienced ice sculpter!
It’s completely free to attend the festival and you can enjoy live demonstrations, have the chance to win a holiday and feel like your in a winter wonderland. The BBC have posted fabulous footage of sculptors chipping away at blocks of ice and demonstartions on how they make these magical features.
