Houston Center For Contemporary Craft Free Admission Thursday

Free Admission Thursday from 10am to 5pm at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft - see INFO below. The Craft Garden is a joint venture between artists, gardeners, and other Houston community members to maintain an outdoor educational exhibition space that is unique to HCCC. Rather than focusing on flowering or edible plants, The Craft Garden features four separate spaces dedicated to the plants used to make baskets, textiles, dyes, and papers. A small selection of plants in the garden include: turmeric, madder, and indigo used primarily for dyes, and brown cotton and ramie, used largely for basket-making, weaving, paper-making, and other fiber arts. The center often hosts educational workshops in the garden, and resident artists are invited to harvest materials for their practices directly from the ground, to be inspired by the natural environment it offers, and to install exhibits outdoors. In addition to the plants themselves, HCCC partners with a local beekeeping organization to maintain a community of rooftop honeybees that both pollinate the garden and provide educational opportunities to visitors.HCCC's Craft Garden is a member of Urban Harvest, a Houston-based network of almost 150 edible and educational gardens.
