What is a workshop with LEGO bricks?

What is a workshop with LEGO bricks?

LEGO bricks are a great, versatile tool to encourage engagement with a wide range of age groups, from children to adults. Its tactile nature means workshops can be the perfect ice breaker, too – people can’t help but pick LEGO bricks up and start playing.

Workshops with LEGO bricks make use of this tactile appeal to participants of all ages, and can be used at venues of almost any size, and adapted to most visitor numbers.

Our workshops have been booked by clients including Science Museum Group, National Trust and regional museums and libraries across the UK.

If you would like to discuss a LEGO workshop or event with me, please do get in touch.
