The Society of Arts and Crafts Presents:
THE 11TH ANNUAL CRAFTBOSTON SPRING
GET OUT YOUR GOGGLES – IT’S FULL STEAMPUNK AHEAD!


The chances are that you’re either a steampunk aficionado or you are asking yourself, “what the heck is
steampunk?” Good question! Loosely defined, steampunk is an aesthetic created by blending Victorian- era
culture and modern technological advances, incorporating elements of science fiction and/or fantasy. Think
Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, cogs, brass and copper contraptions.

“What? – I can’t even imagine!” Well imagine no more – hop into your time machine and come to Craftboston Spring from
March 23-25, 2012 to visit the six artists that comprise “Modvic’s Full Head of Steampunk” (booth #156). You
may also notice a steampunk aesthetic featured in other Craftboston artists’ work, such as Mike Libby’s
mechanical bugs (booth # 418) and Wendy Ellertson’s fantastical creatures (booth #347).


For a better explanation than we can give, Modvic’s Bruce Rosenbaum will be giving a “Living Steampunk”
lecture on both Saturday and Sunday. “Steampunk Sunday” will also include demonstrations to teach you
“How to steampunk your bicycle”, “How to steampunk your clock” and much more! Additionally, wear your
best Steampunk outfit for a $5 discount at the door.
So grab your brass compass, pop in your monocle and navigate your way to the Seaport to see some reimagined
craft!
