Steampunk is a style of design and fashion that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction.

However, Steampunk is not just the clothes you wear, there are many activities held throughout the year in Wisconsin that allow you to immerse yourself in the Steampunk genre. This is just the first in a series of classes that will introduce you to the world of Steampunk.
