Steampunk Valentine Hack!
What is Steampunk you ask? Well, it's a genre of science fiction that adds steam power and technology to a setting inspired by the Victorian Era or the American Wild West. Kind of like a future and a past. Do you like Miyazaki films? Legend of Korra? Jules Verne? Lots of Steampunk!
Featured Projects (this week all projects are $5 each):
The art of making and giving Valentines was perfected and popularized in the 19th century. Come use the very best in fancy and luxurious materials to make a traditional Victorian Valentine!
If your Valentine is more into technology, use LEDs and conductive ink to make a card that will brighten anyone's day!
Make a millinery masterpiece with a miniature top hat and accessories!
We'll show you various techniques to make this necessary eyepiece for anyone working with steam engines, flying airships, or riding into adventure.
Plus various electronic kits ($9-25) are available! See you Sunday!
