Join us this month to create your own piece of beautiful organic jewelry using wire, stones and sea glass.  Local jewelry artist, Annette Kinslow, will teach participants some basic wire-wrapping skills, including how to make bails, loops and scrolls.  Older participants (ages 10 and up) will wrap a stone or sea glass with wire to create a unique pendant for a necklace, while younger ones (ages 9 and under) will enjoy twisting plastic-coated wire to create a multi-colored bracelet. Come and create your very own art-wear!

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free craft-activity open house on the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. We provide the materials, and you provide the creativity! Families and children of all ages are welcome, and materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product and history of craft.
