This month, pick up a kit to explore one part of the ceramic process by designing and painting your own ceramic tile, in this activity inspired by the fall exhibition, Later, Longer, Fewer. Add text or a design to your tile using paint to create a surface pattern similar to glazing. Learn the science behind glazing, and learn what happens to ceramic pieces once they are fired. Check out the ceramic works on view at HCCC to find inspiration for your tile!
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. This event is subject to change or cancellation in response to current COVID-19 conditions.
HOH To Go is generously supported in part by Strake Foundation.
