When I first started inquiring about venues that might be interested in participating in a steampunk festival around the downtown area of Attleboro, the Attleboro Area Industrial Museum was my first stop.
The Attleboro Public Library in Attleboro, MA is an amazing resource, not only for research, but for recreational reading, programs, children’s activities, games, yoga, magazines, and informative displays. There is so much available at the library for every member of the community, but first, I’d like to talk about the building.
Do you want to pitch in to help the first annual Jewelry City Steampunk Festival become the best event it can be? Do you need community service hours for school? Do you want to hang out with a bunch of creative people for a day in Attleboro? Then this opportunity is for you!
Up until recently, Cleverly-Steelworks was the biggest name in modern Victorian technology. Eleanor Cleverly used her considerable genius to invent new technologies, and Julius Steel found ways to turn those inventions into cold, hard cash.
But when Julius decided to sell some of Eleanor’s inventions to the military, Eleanor felt that was a step too far. She wanted to change the world, not destroy it. Eleanor deconstructed her inventions, turning them into jewelry in the hopes that she could make something beautiful out of something so terrible.
