Spring is here!  Please join HCCC for HANDS-ON HOUSTON on April 6.  This month’s activity is inspired by the blooming flowers in our Craft Garden and the current exhibition, Constructing Solitude, by Janice Jakielski.  Janice’s theatrical headdress forms are adorned with handmade paper and fabric flowers.  Stop by to see the exhibition, then create your own felt-flower hair accessory or pin!

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free craft-activity open house on the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. We provide the materials, and you provide the creativity! Families and children of all ages are welcome, and materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product and history of craft.
