This month, please join HCCC resident artist Lisa Hardaway to create hand-woven bookmarks. Learn how to use a small hand-made loom and yarn to create your own woven piece. Before or after the activity, explore the exhibition Future Tradition: Melissa Cody and find inspiration from the textiles on view. Discover how Cody’s intricate patterns and bright colors provide a contemporary spin on a traditional Navajo craft.
Note: Please allow 25 minutes to complete this activity. 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.
