Makers Museum Icon

Our Makers Museum is a gallery of creative steampunk inspired objects constructed by local makers like yourself! Each item will be accompanied by an information sheet and the maker has an opportunity to talk about or demonstrate the items he/she has chosen to display.

Open to all makers, contact if you would like to bring a few of your creations to show and perhaps demonstrate at 13 GEARS. 

Parasol Dueling  is a steampunk sport that we are excited to bring to 13 GEARS and will be conducted as follows.

Figures are used to determine the outcome of a round and are similar to the street urchins game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.
The three Parasol Duel "Figures" are:
The Plant (rock) - Parasol is held point down to the ground at the side of the player.
The Twirl (paper) - Parasol is opened and placed on the shoulder and twirled.
The Snub (scissors) - Parasol is held pointing towards the opponent and opened.
Therefore: Plant​ ​beats Snub;​ ​Twirl​ ​beats Plant; Snub​ ​beats Twirl

Here is a video of how we will be conducting parasol dueling at 13 GEARS:

We are hosting a  Tea Dueling tournament again at 13 GEARS! This event is brought to you by the help of the DIODES (

Tea Dueling, simply like playing a game of chicken with a tea soaked biscuit. The winner is the last person to successfully eat the entire biscuit in one bite (without loosing any of the tea soaked biscuit on the table or themselves).
