MORE than 2,000 enthusiasts enjoyed a wide range of Lego exhibits, play area and masterclasses at Queenscliffe Bricks at the weekend.
Rotary Club of Queenscliffe’s Karen Pecar said there were more than 50 exhibitors organised by the Melbourne Lego User Group this year, with exhibits ranging from artworks and trains to pirates and princesses and everything in between.
The community event run by the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe at Point Londsale Primary School raised more than $10,000 for local, national and international Rotary projects.
“Residents of Geelong and the Bellarine might have recognised ‘Lathamstowe’ in Queenscliff or the Geelong CFA and ambulance stations among the exhibits, but the carnivorous man-eating plant in the garden might have been a surprise,” Ms Pecar said.
“Lego guru Travis Matheson worked his Lego magic in the Masterclasses and revealed the secrets of ‘brickbending’ – the art of making straight bricks into curved shapes. In 20 minutes, the young Lego initiates managed to build a huge circle out of Lego that fit 40 adults and children inside.”
“Kale Frost took out the People’s Choice Award for his build ‘World’s Finest’ – a huge multi-dimensional mosaic which looked like Superman from one angle and Batman from another.
