Build Your Own Controller Workshop

Think you can do better than the boffins over at Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft? Then join R-CADE for their 'Build Your Own Controller Workshop'!

Build Your Own Controller Workshop

About Build Your Own Controller Workshop

Design and create a functioning controller that you can then play in store on one of our retro gaming machines! Let your imagination go crazy! Design your dream game controller any size, shape and colour you like! Using our Makey Makey kit we will connect your controller to our computer gaming system where you can race in Mariokart or Dash like Sonic with your new creation! You can then take your controller home to show off to family and friends!

Your 3 hour workshop includes all materials needed, a snack and drink and time to play in our arcade area.

Suitable for crafters age 8 and up.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Build Your Own Controller Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
