Building Block Hack!

FORMcard, Peter Marigold

Join designer and FORMcard™ creator Peter Marigold to hack your building blocks!

FORMcard™ is a handy, pocket sized card of strong, meltable bio-plastic that you can use to make, fix and modify the world around you. Just drop it in a cup of hot water and it's ready to use. It’s great for mending broken toys and tool handles, and for playing with in creative ways.

Come along and play with FORMcard™ to hack your building blocks: make special tools that fit minifig hands or customize their heads, or create tentacles for monsters. Experiment and create all kinds of weird and wonderful extra add-ons, or if any of your building blocks are broken – you can bring them along and fix or improve them!

We’ll provide some blocks to play with but please bring along your own of any brand so that you can hack them and then take them home.
