Family Activity – Minecraft ‘Inspired’ Electronic Paper Craft Torches

During this activity, young people and their parent/guardian(s) will combine arts, crafting and digital technology to create their own Minecraft ‘Inspired’ paper torch, which will light up at the touch of a button. 

If Minecraft is not your thing, don’t worry, you can decorate your paper circuit torch in any style you like. You will be able to take your finished torch home and even use them as part of the town’s Lumen Festival of Lights.

This activity is part of the Luminate Project, our collaboration with Crewe libraries and funded by Arts Council England
