workshop one!


We had a great turn out for our first workshop!


It was fantastic to have images of Frank Averes sports already in progress to help people feel inspired to get started!


To think about the future its always wise to look into the past first, we began by having a look at what Coastlands used to look like…


and then we considered what it looks like now:

We brainstormed ideas for Kapiti 2035 and took a look at the plan for our model and dished out plots for people to build. People wanted to know how big the spaces were in Lego ‘studs’ and Jake explained that 1 stud-wide brick = 8mm. Together we discussed what extra bricks would be needed – green baseboards, leaves, flowers, green bricks, these have now been ordered from overseas.
