This event is now in the past.

What’s cooler than having your very own arcade game in your living room? Making it yourself, of course! This three part workshop series gives you the opportunity to design, customise, construct and detail your very own retro-arcade cabinet. We will showcase your cabinet at The Edge for everyone to admire before you can take it home for unrivalled street cred.

This workshop includes all the materials you need and access to all the tools required for the building process.  We’ll help you put together the cabinet, connect up the screen and joysticks and customise the artwork on the outside of the cabinet. All you will need to do is plug in a game, the console will act as an emulator.

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop will be completed over three sessions. Please ensure your availability for all sessions: 19 Jan, 2 Feb and 9 Feb.

This workshop is part of SLQ’s Garage Gamer program - unleash your passion for play in our games gallery or at workshops, talks, films and more. Check out the full program of events.
