SYNOPSIS: This instructor-led class introduces and encourages students to “Free Build” – make their own models and creations without the use of instructions. First by example and then through inspiration, each student is taught how to create objects, art, or just about anything they can think of – from a colorful pallet of basic bricks and plates. If your younger builders say that they don’t have enough pieces or they can’t think of anything to build – or they can’t build anything on their own… this class is for you (well, actually them)! SNOT (Studs Not On Top) construction is introduced.

Master Builder Workshop: Ages 8 - 10 . . . . . . $36

RECOMMENDED AGES: 8 – 10

EXPERIENCE:              [X] 2+ years building experience   [X] Looking to increase building skills and parts knowledge

PRE-REQUISITE:         Building LEGO sets without assistance

DURATION:                 90 minutes

CLASS MAX:             12

SYNOPSIS: Students work individually and in pairs to accomplish varied construction tasks and complete mini builds. The class is divided into two portions: “blind building” with a partner, and “blind building” in a bag.

OBJECTIVE: Through two distinct exercises, participants will advance their building techniques, learn new elemental usage, increase building speed and accuracy, and improve communication skills while learning formal nomenclature and descriptions of various parts.

APPROACH: In the first portion, students are partnered in pair and sit opposite each other with a barrier placed between them. The pair will build a set, with one only reading the instructions and the other only performing the build. Students learn how to describe / locate parts, assemble based on instruction, prioritize tasks, and improvise as needed. In the second part, students learn how to assemble models using only tactile sense – building a model inside a bag. Students learn to explore the hidden nature of specific elements and acquire finely tuned special relation skills based on a single sense. Combined, these techniques increase students’ skill, speed, and communication while expanding element knowledge and alternative usage.
