Richmond Barracks

Children’s History Workshop: Building History in LEGO® Bricks

Join Dublin’s Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche and professional LEGO® Brick artist Jessica Farrell for this free, interactive workshop at Richmond Barracks for families with children aged 7 - 13.

In this special history edition of the LEGO® Brick Family Workshop, we will use LEGO® bricks to build and create historical scenes as a team. 

Each family group, or "team", can contain up to four people but must have a minimum of at least one adult and one child. All LEGO® bricks for the workshop are provided.

Please note that children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the workshop.
