HOH TO GO: WET-FELTED BEAD NECKLACES

Saturday, Sep. 5, 2020 – Saturday, Sep. 5, 2020

11:00 AM – 01:00 PM
US/Central

HOH-To-Go2-2

Our long-running family craft-making event, Hands-on Houston, is now mobile, with HOH To Go activity kits that can be picked up and used by the whole family! Designed for ages 5+, the kits will include materials and detailed instructions to guide you and your family through each month’s activity. Just like regular Hands-on Houston events, HOH To Go takes place on the first Saturday of every month and is free to the public.

For our first HOH To Go, play with a combination of hard and soft craft materials, wood and fiber, to create a wearable felt necklace. Experiment with applying friction, water, and a little bit of soap to wool in order to create a solid felt ball in a variety of colors. This activity is a great intro-level project for anyone interested in trying out wet felting for the first time.

Kits can be picked up at HCCC from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Just pull into the parking lot behind the HCCC building (off Travis and Rosedale Streets), and let a staff member know how many children will be participating in the activity. HCCC staff will then safely deliver a kit to your car for you to take home and enjoy!  When you’ve completed the activity, share your projects with #craftwithhccc, or tag us at @crafthouston. We’ll share some of our favorites in our social media posts!

Note:  HOH To Go kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Limit four kits per family.
