Steampunk is a retro-futuristic way of looking at design through the lens of Victorian England. Its birth can be linked back to the imaginations of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells and various other authors that visualised the distant future using technologies of their time: steam-powered flying space crafts for example!
These ideas gave birth to an art/craft movement that reimagines contemporary objects, such as phones, computers and vehicles through the technologies and aesthetics of the 19th Century steam-powered age.
Often described as an alternative history or evolution of technology. Artwork and objects are characterised using cogs, brass and timber in its design, and almost always uses steam-powered and hand-riveted construction. It deviates from the route of electronics, where everything is ergonomic, compact and built for comfort and efficiency.
This online workshop will use the identifying principles of the sub-genre art movement and focus on skills, techniques and materials. Allowing students to explore, create and respond using their own success criteria. The art activities will incorporate construction, modelling and painting.
