You've heard the song, 'Glue some gears on it and call it steampunk', haven't you? Well, these workshops are your opportunity to glue some gears on classic literary or cinematic moments, in a literary rather than literal sense. Who can forget last year's series of 'Hobbit' workshops, in which we introduced you to plucky steampunk heroine Bilbette Baggins, and helped participants sort out their rings.
We'll start be helping you to identify some of the more obvious steampunk elements and tropes; and we'll give you a little kick-start with one or two changes of our own... then we'll go to a galaxy far far away and turn to the dark side of the farce! Oh yes, bring your own puns, and make sure you know your steamtrooper from your tea-fighter. Because in space, no one can hear you steam...
Come and see us at the Phoenix Alternative Festival, and find out for yourself. But wait! There's more! Because you'll also get to hear DJ sets from the Gothic Alternative Steampunk and Progressive (GASP) radio show during the event (don't forget you can tune in to GASP every Thursday 8-11pmUK, plus join in live on the weekly facebook event). AND there's also a humongous pile of stupendous acts, bands, performances, other workshops, time travelling tea tents... more stuff, almost than you can conceive of. Or glue a gear on.
Tickets are still available for the event. We hope to see you there!
