As Christmas gets closer, thoughts turn to festive decorations and what else could it be but a LEGO brick bauble?

Workshops take place on Sunday, December 6, and will start every 15 minutes from 11am to 2pm.

They are suitable for all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

All materials are supplied.

It is priced at £10 per bauble, booking is essential. Please call 01909 501 700.

With more than 50 models on display at The Harley Gallery’s free exhibition, Brick City is the vision of LEGO® artist Warren Elsmore who gave up his career as an IT Consultant to build his magnificent, detailed LEGO® structures when they started to attract international acclaim. His models have been displayed at leading galleries across the World and he has even produced a bestselling book on the subject ‘Brick City: LEGO® for Grown Ups’.

The star of the show is undoubtedly a 5ft tall by 5ft long replica of St Pancras station in London, which took more than 500 hours to build over two years. Created from more than 150,000 LEGO® pieces, the station is fully ‘working’ in that each of the six platforms can be used and trains run in and out.

Brick City runs at The Harley Gallery until January 10.
