Our Pixel Craft workshop includes…

  • Retro Computer Coding – Introducing a brand new game design workshop where participants get the chance to create their very own version of our Christmas themed game Santa’s Super Sprint!
  • Classic Games – Take a break from coding to experience the sounds and thrills of a 1980s video games arcade with titles such as Pac Man, Space Invaders & Frogger.
  • Crafting Activities – (1) Create unique or pre-designed pixel sprites using fuse-beads and turn them into beautiful keyrings or jewellery to take home. (2) Cut, fold and stick thin card to build a Papercraft replica of a classic computer to take home.
  • Physical Activity – Continuing the video game theme, our physical activity session lets you dance along to songs like the Super Mario theme and the Pac-man dance, or follow choreographed lightsaber sequences in time to music.
  • A Free Meal (and healthy eating discussion) – A nutritious, locally prepared plant-based packed lunch with hot soup from our friends at Cafe Fresh Warrington and an informative and interactive talk about the benefits of a plant-based diet
