Workshop Day at Kew Bridge Steam Museum

A splendid time was had by all at Kew Bridge this past weekend, many frocks were modified, much tea was duelled with, and the Pax Britannica author Mr Jonathan Green came along and did a fine reading from his latest opus, as well as a finer report than anyone else could imagine:

Mr Green flatters me deeply with his words, and I am blushing!

Do come along to the next themed weekend, a Fashion event over the weekend of the 16th and 17th of July.

The Art Of Steampunk

As you may know, I exhibited at Oxford's Museum of the History Of Science last year, an exhibition that was curated by Art Donovan, further to this, the contributors to this show are to be featured in a book edited by Mr. Donovan.

Although this book isn't available until August, I thought it worth mentioning if only to publicly thank Mr. Donovan for all his hard work.

Available for purchase here, and here.

Kew Bridge Steam Museum Steampunk Exhibition

Those nice people at Kew Bridge Steam Museum are graciously hosting a display of Steampunk art from the four corners of the world, including a few items of my own construction:

My completed Rocket back pack, with Protective helmet,
completed especially for this Exhibition.

Every weekend afternoon, you can partake in the Ancient and Noble* art of Tea Duelling:

A dueller is caught mid nom.

The Exhibition runs until the end of August, and will host special events on most weekends, some of which I've been threatened to appear at.

More information on both the Exhibition and Kew Bridge Steam Museum may be found here.

The rules of Tea Duelling may be found here.

*Recent and Silly, not Ancient and Noble.
