Dive into the world of LEGO® at the Museum of Making

Artist Jon Tordoff has been on a mission to recreate England’s Lake District out of LEGO® bricks. During the first COVID lockdown, Jon became inspired by his lifelong interest in LEGO® and his love of the Lake District and began creating landscapes out of bricks in his Derbyshire home. He hasn’t stopped building since…

The 12.3 square metre model is made up of over 200,000 LEGO® pieces and started with Jon’s favourite spot, Buttermere, but now includes landmarks Crummock Water, Ennerdale, Honister, Borrowdale and Derwentwater. It represents 47 square miles of the Lake District, at a small but exceptionally detailed scale. With plans to expand into Keswick and beyond, it doesn’t look like Jon will be finished any time soon!

You may spot Jon working on the model during its stay at the Museum of Making, keep an eye out for dates.

We have a series of LEGO® themed activities, check our website for details!

Drop-in exhibition, Suitable for all.
