Build a fully playable Retro Arcade Machine workshop

Add a touch of elegant nostalgia with this compact retro arcade machine.

This is unlike any regular crafting workshop like art jamming, rug tufting, or pottery. Join us on the next level for this whole-day workshop to build your own retro arcade machine using beautiful and quality parts from Japan.

During this workshop, you will fashion the exterior and work on all the internal components that make this machine run. It is a wonderful way to revisit your childhood games and introduce them to your children; games like Mappy, Darkwing Duck, Metal Slug, Road Fighter, and others!
