Steampunk Con Mixes In More Maker Fun

California has once again been blessed with another steampunk convention, this time to be held in Emeryville, CA on March 12-14 as the “Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition.” This year’s event promises to mix in much more of the DIY/maker flavor for a greater hands-on feel. Steampunk has been gaining much broader appeal in recent months with the continued growth of maker communities, and the many delightful varieties of music and literature. The con will feature, among other things, a 2 day track of 2-hour how-to, hands-on, and interactive workshops gear towards makers, DIY-ers, mad scientists, and evil geniuses. Of course, if you are an evil genius you probably don’t need a workshop except as a gathering for potential test subjects.
