We can help you to develop imaginative ways of telling your stories, whether through traditional panels or more creative solutions. We can work with designers and illustrators, artists, modelmakers, film-makers and 'crafts people to help visitors to understand more about special places.

We often find it helpful to work closely with communities to develop a project, consulting local groups or recording interviews. Many of our projects have a direct input from schools, colleges or community groups.

Ice House can help you to develop interpretive plans for your special site, or work with existing plans to produce leaflets, panels, exhibitions, films, interactive models and displays, loan boxes, discovery days and learning experiences.

We’re used to being asked to project manage some unusual interpretation projects. Past projects have included lighting schemes, community plays, heritage recordings and films and volunteer development. If you’ve an idea for a project but don’t know how to make it happen, give us a call, because we can probably help.
