Please join HCCC this Saturday for HANDS-ON HOUSTON. This month, participants will learn sgraffito, a technique used to decorate clay artwork or pottery. Sgraffito is the process of scratching through a layer of colored underglaze to reveal the natural color of clay beneath. Participants will choose from a variety of fun shapes and colors to create an ornament decorated with their own sgraffito design. After the pieces are finished, they may be left at HCCC to be fired in the kiln and picked up the following Saturday.
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.
