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.

Tuesday Lunchtime Workshops at St Paul’s Juniors

We also run building workshops for pupils of St Paul’s Juniors in Barnes on Tuesday lunchtimes. For those that want to go further than just following instructions for sets, we can demonstrate how to make realistic-looking vehicles or buildings, or add mechanisms to custom builds. As with all our workshops we bring a large amount of different types of elements to build with. As well as standard bricks we bring translucent pieces, windows, wheels, Technic gears and axles plus much more.

The workshops are held in Laboratory 3 in the Junior Science Block from 12:20pm until 1pm on Tuesdays during term. We have space for up to 15 pupils per session. After one free trial workshop, if a pupil wishes to continue the cost is £6 per session, payable in advance for the rest of the term’s sessions. The first workshop of the Spring Term will be on Tuesday 17th January 2023. There are nine workshops in the Spring Term. For more information please email us at info@brickbuzz.uk

Bitbuzz Computing Workshops at Wednesday Curious Minds

We run computing workshops at the Curious Minds Home Ed group on Wednesday mornings from 11:30am to 12:30pm. These can cover topics such as creative digital image making, or the basics of image editing software, or vector graphics design software. We can also look at an introduction to coding a web page using HTML and CSS or how to code a simple app.

We recommend these sessions for children of ages ten and above. Groups are quite small so places will need to be booked in advance. The first computing workshop of 2023 will be on Wednesday 18th January. The cost is £10 per child per session. We will be adding a dedicated section to this site about the computing workshops in the future. For now, if you would like more information about them, please email info@brickbuzz.uk
