In honor of this month’s Empty Bowls Houston event, please join HCCC to create a simple, clay slump bowl.  Local artist, Renee LeBlanc, and other members of the artist guild, ClayHouston, will guide the activity and demonstrate how to make a bowl and decorate it with a leaf-printing technique.  The bowls will not be fired, so participants will take them home the same day.  Clay for this activity was generously donated by the Ceramic Store.

Empty Bowls Houston is a grassroots effort by artists and craftspeople to feed the hungry. The event, which takes place Saturday, May 18th, at HCCC, is presented by Whole Foods Market and implemented locally by Houston-area ceramists and artists working in various media, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and Houston Food Bank.

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.
