Join HCCC for Craft Social, a night of making and exploring contemporary craft over conversation and refreshments. 

In May, we will explore ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement.  More than simply arranging flowers in a containerikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together.  Learn about this art form’s history with a short presentation by Sylvia Hanna-Russel from the Ikenobo School of Ikebana. Then, with help from the experts at the Ikebana Society of Houston, play with form, color, and line using a variety of plants to create an asymmetrical floral composition.  Plants and vases will be provided, and some materials will be sourced from HCCC’s very own Craft Garden.

About Craft Social
Craft Social encourages adults to explore contemporary craft through other disciplines and media. These casual, social events emphasize experimentation, curiosity, and innovation.
