There was no shortage of raw material as participants in a snow-sculpting workshop gathered on Tanya Lake in Labrador City on Sunday March 3rd. The event was part of the Canada 150 celebrations, in conjunction with a number of local sponsors.

The workshop introduced people to basic techniques, and the tools that can help turn a block of snow into a work of art. 

Led by Nicolas Godon and assisted by Michäel Belley, participants outlined their ideas and then set out to sculpt them.

Hours later it was evident, the participants learned a lot in a short period of time. All week, people using the walking trail at Tanya Lake were treated to the sight of these beautiful creations. 
So the next time you're shoveling your driveway and around your home after a big snowfall, don't think of it as mess you're facing. Think of it as a yard full of potential art.
