Awesome LEGO® Brick Workshops

With Bricks, We Build!

Building with bricks is key to the process of trying to do new things and failing... and picking up the pieces and trying something new!  Failure is a fantastic teacher... as long as you can make failing fun!

 

All our programs are designed to inspire, entertain, and educate. And by entertain... we mean have fun! 

 

If you have any suggestions for new workshops or if you want to volunteer at any of the workshops please do contact us!

 


Due to the public health and safety guidelines recently released from the BC government regarding COVID-19, Brick Masters Academy will be canceling current workshops and postponing up coming workshops from now till at least the end of May.

 

Despite that, Brick Masters Academy will return! We appreciate your patience and understanding as we explore future options.
