Creative Building for Kids

About Our Workshops

Do your children love building with LEGO® bricks? We thought it would be great for kids to enjoy sharing the fun with other kids, building their imaginations and building friendships.

As a toy that’s also a flexible building system, LEGO® bricks are perfect for making your children’s ideas come to life. With their friends they can also invent stories for their models to enact.

We believe in helping children to unleash their creativity by letting them choose what they want to build. We are passionate about the power of learning through play.

We bring a wide range of bricks to each session, mostly sorted by colour, for the children to build with. A master builder is on hand to offer help with building and finding the right pieces. We also bring some inspirational models.

With years of experience in designing and making advanced models, we can help children realise their ideas and go beyond just following instructions for kits.

Take a look at our Instagram feed to see some of the models children have built in our workshops. You can find some ideas for builds to try at home on our blog.
