What is making ice sculptures?
Making ice sculptures is a form of sculpture in which ice is used as a raw material. Making an ice sculpture is also called icecarving .
Ice processing involves a number of difficulties because of its properties. The ideal ice block consists of pure, clean water, so that the ice is well transparent, and contains as few air bubbles as possible. That is why we provide a separate workshop with the perfect blocks of ice.
What does the ice sculpture making workshop look like?
After you choose a theme of the day, each team will receive an instruction and sketch form. It is then up to you and your team to put the winning design on paper.
We start with the preparation of the ice, which means that in the beginning mainly rough work is done. When you are done with this, a plan can be made. When you are done with this you can make a beautiful design that matches the theme. Here too it quickly becomes clear who has what role within the group. Are you a thinker, doer, dreamer, decision maker or a true artist?

What are ice sculptures?
An ice sculpture is actually a work of art made from ice. It is an image of frozen water. It is similar to sculpting using ice. When sculpting you can actually use all materials, such as stone, clay, plaster, wood, metal and concrete. An ice sculpture focuses specifically on ice as a material. The best ice you can use for this is pure and clean water. This ice is transparent and contains few air bubbles. You also have to make sure that you do not create your ice sculpture in a warm room, because then the ice sculpture will melt in no time.
How do you make ice sculptures?
Making an ice sculpture requires a lot of knowledge and patience. Carving, as it is officially called, is becoming increasingly popular. People who do this as a profession travel all over the world to work for festivals. At the moment there are only 300 professional carvers. These people use their carving tools to remove parts of the ice to form the ice. They start with a large block of ice, which consists of clean water. There are special factories that filter rainwater and freeze it while stirring. That way there is beautiful, smooth ice that is ideal for making an ice sculpture.
