Looking for something free and fun to do over the summer holidays? Our How to... workshops are designed for 8-11 year olds who have an interest in video games and technology, and are a great way to develop new skills!

Inspired by our upcoming exhibition by artist Uma Breakdown, the workshops invite attendees to explore the horror genre and create spooky computer game worlds.

No previous experience in using 3D technology is needed, but we encourage young people to bring their gaming knowledge and imagination. Each workshop includes a mix of guided activities including 3D modelling, drawing and facilitated discussion.
