HANDS-ON HOUSTON:  BOOK IN A BOX

Time
Saturday, October 3, 2015 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main Street, Houston, Texas 77002 (Map)

This month, join HCCC staff and volunteers as we explore the art of creating books. Fold and glue a mini accordion book, and disguise it inside a tiny box. Use stamps, markers, and colorful tissue paper to decorate the “covers” of your box and the pages of your book. Amaze your friends as you open what appears to be an ordinary jewelry box and the pages of your masterpiece are revealed.

Please Note: The activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. No supplies will be handed out after 2:50 PM.

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. More information at https://www.crafthouston.org/learn/education-overview/.
