In March, join HCCC to make pinch pots, inspired by the current exhibition Forms of Inheritance: The Work of Anna Mayer.
Using air-dry clay, roll, pinch, and carve your design to create a small pot in this beginner level project. Consider what your pot will contain and how the function can influence your design. Use your imagination to decorate your pinch pot. Will you paint your pot with colorful patterns, or add familiar imagery, like an apple, a smiley face, or an animal? What will your vessel hold? Because air-dry clay dries and hardens on its own, there is no need for your pot to be fired in a kiln.
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! 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.
