Play With Design

Play With Design

Saturday 20 September

Explore the areas where drawing and games meet, in this event as part of London Design Festival.

You'll have a chance see very early sketches of famous games characters like Moshi Monsters and Monument Valley, and draw your own character on a coffee cup. Toys and games company MakieLab will be there, and a 3D printer will be working away printing characters.

You can even take part in a workshop to make your own game on the Scratch Jr app for iPad, led by Sophia George, who was games designer in residence at the V&A earlier this year. These 1-hour workshops will take place at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm and are suitable for children aged 5 to 9 years. Places on the workshops are limited so you'll need to sign up on the day.
