HANDS-ON HOUSTON: MINI TOTE BAGS

Time
Saturday, September 1, 2018 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St. (Map)

This month, join HCCC staff and volunteers to create your own, mini tote bag, inspired by the current exhibition, B. Anele: I Don’t Play That Game.

Draw inspiration from the raw-canvas garments and soft sculptures on view, which incorporate primary colors, fruits, and other symbols to create a sense of playfulness. Then, experiment with a tape-resist fabric-painting technique to create a graphic composition, and discover how using pops of bright color can add originality to your tote bag.

Note: The activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20 minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here.
