Pick up a kit to learn the basics of creating your own zine, inspired by the fall exhibition, Copy Culture: Zines Made and Shared. Zines are self-published, do-it-yourself booklets that got their name from “magazine” or “fanzine.” Zines touch on a variety of topics, from music and art to politics, humor, and personal stories. Write, draw, stamp, collage, or use any combination of words and imagery to create a one-page zine in a variety of styles. Choose a comic-strip story, go abstract, or find another style to express yourself. What will your zine be about?
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.
