It starts today! All ready for visitors to come and have a go at building some new bridges for the River Tyne – in Lego! Chuffed to be a Headline Maker too. Maker Faire runs April 1st and 2nd at Centre for Life, Newcastle. Tickets available on the door.
The other week my Angel of the North model got pushed over by a child at my exhibition! As you can see from the shot below, it was pretty wrecked. Watch the video to see me putting it back together!
This weekend my exhibition at the Centre for Life, Newcastle, opened. North East Lego Landmarks showcases my work from the last couple of years recreating iconic buildings and structures from the North East of England. It includes Angel of the North, BALTIC, Civic Centre, St James’ Park, Transporter Bridge and more.
Reaction so far has been fantastic, and I’m thrilled with how the models look in the Centre.
The exhibition runs until May 14th and entry is included with the standard tickets price for the Centre. See here for more details.
My Team Valley model for UK Land Estates is now complete – shown below with aerial shot of the real site at the top. Model is 60×25 inches, scale 1:2000 to represent the 3km long site. A very challenging project at this scale – hard to get detail for individual buildings so this was more about overall feel of this very large site.
See it at my North East Lego Landmarks exhibition which opens at The Centre for Life, Newcastle, on January 14th…
Here it is – the first completed St James’ Park made from Lego. One of three commissioned by Newcastle United Foundation. This one will be auctioned off very shortly. Number two could be yours for the price of a raffle ticket! Watch this space for more details…
Latest project folks – St James’ Park in Newcastle, home of Newcastle United Football Club. The Newcastle United Foundation have commissioned me to build 3 of these models, approx 26×20 inches. This is not finished yet but watch this space to see final shots, and to hear about how you might get your hands on one!
