Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 19th August, as we return from our summer break with the first episode of our new season of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, as we explore just some of the amazing builds that formed part of this year’s Relay for Life weekend.

And we also revisit the beautiful Luminaria ceremony, as we watched it take place outside the telethon studio.

We’ll be looking at the studio, which won a design award, and the designer build on the sim, created by our own Beq Janus, took third prize in its category. We’ll be talking to Beq about her amazing Escher build (and Saffia will be taking the opportunity to explore the underwater aspects of the build as well!).

Then we’ll be looking at the areas created by Ktysta Ember, Team Caledon and the artist Ub Yifu, as well as looking at some of the other amazing builds through film and still shots.

It makes for another great show – so do come and watch it at 2pm!
