The Ice Academy
The Ice Academy Sculptures LLP was established by Gareth and Laura Giles.
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.
On Wednesday 5th June 2013, The Ice Academy made it's television debut on Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience - The Wedding Planner episode. Rhos enjoyed his time sculpting, he really didn't want to put down his chisels but his schedule was tight and time was short. We think he did very well given circumstances.

Hi Gareth and Laura,
I just wanted to send you both a quick email to thank you both for the beautiful ice sculpture for our wedding reception. The luge aspect of the sculpture went down a treat with guests pouring vodka down it throughout the night! It looked amazing with the lights especially in the evening.
Thank you for literally travelling through hell and high water to get to us, it certainly gave us a wonderful ending to a rollercoaster day!
