Hands on Houston to go

This month, join HCCC in making a woven bracelet, inspired by the current exhibition, Weave Houston: Celebrating 71 Years of the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston.

This project is perfect for beginners interested in fiber crafts. Weaving encourages creative thinking and problem-solving, strengthens fine motor skills, and introduces more advanced skills like sewing and knitting. Learn the basics of weaving, including how to use a small handmade loom and yarn to make your own woven bracelet. Sketch a pattern, and learn to thread your “weft” back and forth through the “warp” threads.

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! Note:  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.
