Workshops

Virtual Builders: Minecraft club

Saturday 18 May14.00 – 16.00

Take part in design and build challenges and meet other gamers at the Farrell Centre’s new Minecraft club.

In line with the opening of our new exhibition BUILDING, the Farrell centre will be launching its own Minecraft club. This bi-weekly club will explore the potential of Minecraft as a tool to understand Architecture, Design and City Planning. Farrell Centre staff will set Minecraft design and build challenges for participants and offer a space for gamers and their parents to come together and share the worlds they have created. This programme was developed in collaboration with a group of primary school children.

Collaborate – Sat 18 May

Good architecture takes great teamwork. Inspired by the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse, gamers will create fantastical building designs, which each participant will contribute to. We will then attempt to translate these into Minecraft and discuss the results.

Important information

Participants must bring their own device to play on and be accompanied by an adult throughout. There will be refreshments for both gamers and adults.

These sessions will be played in Creative Mode, participants will be provided with a unique Seed Code at the start of each session which they must build within.

Booking 

Booking will be available from 15th April, 12.00. Sign up to our Newsletter for a reminder.

Please note you only need to book a place for your child.
