A super-cool range on hands-on activities for children celebrates the completion of a year-long project of improvements, including work to stabilise two giant underground ice wells, at the London Canal Museum.
Bringing the story of the flourishing Victorian trade – once centred at the museum - to life, activities from 10am to 4pm include workshops to help children discover the science behind an ice molecule – and help make a giant version. Victorian cook and author Agnes Marshall, who wrote a book on the making of ice cream, will demonstrate her techniques with a replica of her patent ice cream maker and help youngsters make – and taste – their own. And they can help make a work of art from ice, based on nature and the properties of ice – which will last just a day before it melts away.
