Hands on Houston to go

HOH To Go: Seed Pouches

Saturday, April 3, 2021 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St. (Map)

Spring is here, and it’s time to plant some seeds in the garden!  Learn to create a handmade, felt seed pouch to keep your seeds safe until planting time.

While you can buy seeds from your local garden store, did you know that you can also find them in your own community? Take a walk in your neighborhood, and collect seeds or harvest them from the fresh fruit and vegetables you have at home. Then, discover how to store your seeds in a handmade, felt seed pouch to keep them safe until you are ready to plant them!  Practice basic hand-sewing stitches as you create your pouch and learn how to sew on a button. What will you grow with your seeds?

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.

HOH To Go is generously supported by a grant from Texas Women for the Arts (TWA), a program of the Texas Cultural Trust.
