HANDS-ON HOUSTON:
CROWNS FROM THE GARDEN 

Time
Saturday, January 7, 2017 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main Street. Houston, TX 77002 (Map)

Celebrate Houston’s ever-green winter by joining current resident artist Rebecca Braziel to create simple but beautiful crowns using plant materials from HCCC’s Craft Garden. Use leaves to make prints on green paper, cut out the leaf prints, and add them to a willow tree to create the base of the crown. 

Before or after the activity, use the CraftTexas 2016 Exhibition Activity Guide to explore the exhibition, and check out BEST IF USED BY in the Artist Hall. Don’t forget to stop by the Craft Garden, where you’ll see samples of plants used in the fiber arts.

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