Ever wanted to learn how to carve an ice sculpture?

Renowned ice sculptor Luca Roncoroni will lead free ice carving workshops under Queen Elizabeth Way between 2-4 p.m. today at The Forks.

Participants will learn about ice harvesting and practice carving ice blocks pulled from the river.

“Trained at the world famous Icehotel and two-time Warming Hut winner, Luca melds art and winter unlike any artist we’ve seen in Winnipeg,” said Paul Jordan, CEO of The Forks Renewal Corporation.

“Luca’s art showcases the wonders of our winter rivers and the beauty that we have in our own backyard.”

While you’re at The Forks, bring your skates, as the Red River Mutual Trail now extends to the St. Vital Bridge for a total of 6.1 kilometres.
