I get asked for instructions for many of the large diorama models in my books all the time. Usually, it's a fairly simple answer and I'm afraid that answer is no! With models like St Pancras (yes, I've been asked for instructions for that) using 100s of thousands of bricks - it's simply just not practicable to create instructions. However, this week I was asked on email (my details are on the contact page) about the Gutenberg Press model - which is actually a pretty small build. Now, I'd lo

Whilst we crack on at the orbit, I'm continuing to post videos to my Youtube channel - Episodes 6, 7 and 8 are all now available. However, I interrupt this exciting news story to bring you something even cooler. I've been waiting a long time to post this! Let me tell you a story....About 10 months ago, I received an email from the British Antarctic Survey. They'd seen a picture of my Aurora Australis model, with a micro antarctic station in front. This one in fact, from Brick Wonders:

Occasionally we get to park Mia in some rather cool places...After opening in Woodhorn this morning, it was straight down to London to install 'Bricks in the Sky' into the ArcelorMittal Orbit. An exhibition 80 meters into the sky and a real building challenge. Yup, that's just a part of the structure that needs to be built from 2x4 bricks. It's going to be interesting at least and hopefully I might see some of you there!

What better way to spend a couple of minutes on a Friday afternoon than watch the next episode? Remember, tickets for Bricks in the Sky are on sale now if you want to see both the sculpture itself, the exhibition and a 2m high model made just from LEGO bricks!

Bricks in the Sky!

I've put models into museums, shopping centres and corporate events - why not up in the air?This coming half term weekend, I'll be at the ArcelorMIttal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Park (aka the big red swirly sculpture next to the London Olympic Stadium!) for Bricks in the Sky. Londonist have pictures :-)Over the course of 9 days, I'll be live building a model of the sculpture in LEGO bricks - 2 meters tall! Not only that, but we'll also be bringing a selection of models from Brick City, Br

It's not there for long, but if you're in Edinburgh right now my Christmas window is still visible on South Bridge in Blackwells bookshop until Christmas Eve. If not, sit back, enjoy the video and Merry Christmas! Warren
