Steampunk Art: A Mixed Media Take On This Stylish Craft Trend!

Steampunk Art: A Mixed Media Take On This Stylish Craft Trend!

What is steampunk? Well this stunning trend was born in the 1970s, where it began life as a science-fiction sub-genre, incorporating technology and designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Merely an idea of an alternative history that was explored in fantasy literature, steampunk quickly took on a life of its own, evolving into an art movement, a fashion statement, and even a way of life!

And when you look at the bold and stylised imagery and designs associated with the steampunk trend, it’s not hard to see why! For those entirely new to the movement, steampunk is best be described as how someone from the Victorian era might have imagined the future world would be – a combination of old-school industrial gadgetry with a modern twist!

Crafty contributor, Hannah Oxberry, explored the steampunk trend in her latest project, and the results are stunning! Want to learn how you too can create a stunning mixed media project like this one? Check out Hannah’s step-by-step tutorial below!
