Join HCCC for the return of our HANDS-ON HOUSTON FAMILY FESTIVAL, a free community event for families and visitors of all ages.
This year, HCCC celebrates the Craft Garden and CraftTexas 2022 with indoor/outdoor hands-on activities, demonstrations by local artists, and food and refreshments from local vendors.
- Discover how craft artists use recycled materials in their art by exploring the fall exhibition, CraftTexas 2022
- Learn about upcycling and reuse through these hands-on activities:
- Rope making with t-shirts
- Mini polymer-clay pies in bottle caps
- Mixed-media jewelry
PARKING: The HCCC parking lot will be blocked off for activities and food trucks, but street parking is available nearby.
The HANDS-ON HOUSTON FAMILY FESTIVAL is a super-sized version of HANDS-ON HOUSTON, a free craft-activity open house on the first Saturday of every month (11 AM – 3 PM). Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to current exhibitions and events at HCCC. Families and children of all ages are welcome, and materials are provided.
Hands-on Houston is generously supported by Strake Foundation.
