Students in Dr. Andrea Austin’s ‘EN209: Steampunk’ engaged with the DIY aesthetic of the genre by completing makeables for their end-of-term project. While objects needed to be relevant to at least one of the course novels, members of EN209 took a variety of creative approaches, including transforming vintage tea decanters and old clocks into lamps (Leah Ramsden; Alexandra Zonneveld).

Other students created original graphic-novel inspired artwork (Taylor Zarudny), and retro-fitted an old mirror for two-way surveillance (Brittany Whelan).

How about using 3D printers to create an original, Victorian-inspired musical instrument (Daniel Wright) and a steampunk-themed treasure box (Roula Karawi)?
