This month, stop by HCCC to create paper earrings or a pendant necklace in this fun activity inspired by current resident artists Hong Hong and Michael Velliquette. Both Hong and Michael work with paper as their chosen material. Hong creates site-responsive monumental paper works, while Michael constructs stunningly intricate sculptures.
Paper is not commonly thought of as a jewelry-making material, since it can be fragile and inexpensive; however, it has many other wonderful qualities. Paper is lightweight, easily cut with scissors, and can be colored, painted, and glued. Learn how to make striking compositions by layering paper, and turn your design into a piece of jewelry!
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.
