The Ice Academy was created to provide a facility where anyone could come and experience the unique thrill of ice sculpting.

Laura Giles has over 10 years of sculpting experience and has been a lecturer of sculpture in Further Education in Cardiff for over 5 years. She came 5th in an international ice carving competition in her first year working with ice in January 2006 at St Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum and has been developing her skills ever since.

Gareth Giles has over 12 years teaching experience in the arts and manages all the Academy’s administration.

The Ice Academy provides a unique service. There is nothing quite like working inside a freezer at -10 and with their combined experience, Gareth and Laura provide a safe and fun environment for would-be sculptors of all abilities.
