We will be running two Minecraft Workshops as part of the QVMAG's holiday program.
Individuals from the two groups will be working to create buildings in their own model of Launceston, using the popular video game Minecraft (https://minecraft.net/). They will be inspired by pictures, maps and plans from the Museum collection that will span across various time periods and cater to a variety of builder's interests. Participants will also be encouraged to consider what Launceston might look like in the future and build based on that.
After both groups have completed their builds we will have a flowing, growing representation of Launceston from spans the past, present and future.
The workshops will be ran by Nat and his merry band of QVMAG volunteers working in the Innovation Circle.
The workshops will run from 10:30am to 3pm on Monday the 12th and Tuesday the 13th of January.
Queen Victoria Museum, Inveresk.
We will be working in the Battery Shed, where the groups will come first to drop off there laptops and get settled in. Then we will walk over to the museum to look around, specifically at Lego model of Civic Square currently on display, before returning to the Battery Shed to start building!
$30 per person, $27 for museum friends members
