Spring, while brief in Texas, always sneaks up on us. Azaleas and bluebonnets are blooming, but only for a short time. And it’s one of those rare seasons when being outside in Houston can be just plain pleasant. So between dining al fresco and enjoying walks around the park, we found a few other exciting activities to help you make the most of the season, from festivals and freebies to shows and new openings.
Every month, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft invites the public to partake in a bit of hands-on fun. The April 1 session is with artist Lisa Hardaway where visitors can create a hand-woven bookmark. After you make your piece, stroll through the gallery to see what’s on display.
