The purpose of the workshops is to co-ordinate, educate, upskill and inspire the builders.
There will be Lego bricks at the workshops for free play.
We will take photos and video (with your permission) to record the creative process and promote the project. We will also get photos and descriptions of completed models, which will be used for posters that will be used to explain the completed display.
Attendance at least one workshop is recommended.
