altered art workshop

Drawing heavily on the gothic, Victorian and all things Jules Verne, SteamPunk is a fashion, culture and art movement that came out of the science fiction novels of the late 1980s and early 90s.

Steampunk involves turning something old and useless into something new and exciting using the minimalist of new materials. Turning junk into treasured pieces of wearable art.

Bring along any scrapbooking materials, stamps, stickers, old watches, fabric scraps, photos, bottle tops, old keys, old coins and beading materials, old junk or broken jewellery, silk or dried flowers.

If you have them, bring tools to pull things apart.

Presenters Kris and Melinda Belfield, are very experienced and talented in the craft of jewellery making. Melinda received national recognition in the 2007 Australian Designer of the Year Award sponsored by Beads Etc magazine in conjunction with The Stitches and Craft Show. She took second prize in the Thread Work Artist of the Year section. Kris’ entry in the competition was also selected to tour The Stitches and Craft Shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane that year.
