During the winter of 2013 I hosted a series of Steampunk inspired workshops for the Multnomah County Library system visiting several branches. Youth and adult participants made metal "Admiral Pins" from recycled cans, paper elements and mechanical ephemera.
A second project was available as well, Steampunk Travel Journals- a small DIY zine which featured lists of Portland hot spots for shopping, kraken watching, maker spaces and places to get your gears lubed.
Along with the course materials, I developed a reading list of books within the genera from the Parasol Protectorate to HG Wells Time Machine. Bringing further literacy discussion into the workshop I outlined the history of the movement and it's effects on art, film and pop culture.
