Journal making to go

Kick off 2021 with HOH To Go by making a handmade journal to capture your reflections and thoughts. The start of a new year is the perfect time to write about your favorite (or worst) moments of 2020 and explore your hopes for the future.

Start your journal by learning to fold and sew paper together with waxed thread. Participants will learn a beginner book-binding technique that can be used with various paper types and sizes to create sketchbooks, notebooks, and journals.  Create drawing and writing prompts that will help you get the creative juices flowing as you reflect on 2020 and get ready for 2021.

HOH To Go activity kits can be picked up and used by the whole family. Designed for ages 5+, the kits will include materials and detailed instructions to guide you and your family through each month’s activity. Just like regular Hands-on Houston events, HOH To Go takes place on the first Saturday of every month and is free to the public.

Kits can be picked up at HCCC from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Just pull into the parking lot behind the HCCC building (off Travis and Rosedale Streets), and let a staff member know how many children will be participating in the activity. HCCC staff will then safely deliver a kit to your car for you to take home and enjoy!  When you’ve completed the activity, share your projects with #craftwithhccc, or tag us at @crafthouston. We’ll share some of our favorites in our social media posts! HOH To Go kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Limit four kits per family.

HOH To Go is generously supported by a grant from Texas Women for the Arts (TWA), a program of the Texas Cultural Trust.
