Lego Building in the Café Bar
Monday 17 – Friday 21 February, free
During half term Lego will be available for building fun in the Café Bar!  Artist Joëlle Tuerlinckx has made lots of artworks that explore height and measuring, she even uses ladders in her exhibition to get really high up.  We want you to be inspired by her work and create the tallest and most interesting Lego artwork that you can.  Don’t let it wobble over!

The top three will be photographed and displayed on our website.
