HANDS-ON HOUSTON: SUNCATCHERS

Time
Saturday, March 4, 2023 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St., Houston, Texas, 77002 (Map)

Design your own suncatcher, inspired by our upcoming exhibition TG: Transitions in Kiln-Glass.

Learn how to cut various shapes from clear acrylic to create your composition. Play with layering your shapes and colors, like the exhibiting artists do with kiln glass. Experiment with how your acrylic is affected by the light. Add your finished suncatcher to a window ledge to experience how the spring sun brings your composition to life!

Note: This activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. The event is subject to change or cancellation in response to current COVID-19 conditions.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20-minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here.

Hands-on Houston is generously supported by Strake Foundation.
