Discover this exciting new trend and see how they fit into your fashion style. Steampunk incorporates DIY upcycling and recycling.

This is a style of design that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction, think back to the 1800s flowing dresses, suits, corsets, top hats and pocket watches. Lots of copper and bronze jewellery and accessories.

Participants will learn skills to hand make original pieces of unique wearable art using predominantly upcycled vintage materials such as watch pieces, dominoes, coins and books. Lots of fun and upcycling to create your look, this would make a great costume accessory for a school performance, Halloween or for your next fancy-dress party.
