Join current resident artist and metalsmith Ean Escoto for mold making and plaster casting.

Choose from a variety of objects to create textures and impressions for your mold, and cast a wearable plaster pendent.  Visit Ean’s studio to discover how he uses this technique in his own wearable works. Once your piece has dried, pop it out of the mold, and see the exciting results!  Hang your pendant on a string to wear as a necklace or hang as an ornament.

Note: Please allow 20 minutes to complete this activity and 15 minutes for the project to dry. 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.

Hosting a curated selection of fine art and artisan craft from all over greater Houston, the dozens of artists that attend each month make up a wide cross-section of Houston’s diverse arts culture.

The market is Houston’s longest continuously running outdoor fine art event. Boasting close to 50 artists each month, the market is best described as a small-scale version of a large juried art festival. With popular food trucks, local singer/songwriters, beer and wine, the market is a popular stop on the busiest day of the month for Houston’s oldest community.

First Saturday Arts Market is located in the Historic Houston Heights by YogaOne Studios, 530 W. 19th St. at Lawrence St., the market showcases paintings, sculpture, photography, jewelry and handcrafted items. The entire family is welcome to enjoy the art, live music and delicious fare from some of the area’s best gourmet food trucks. 

Open year-round on the first Saturday of each month, the market is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. September through May and from 6-10 p.m. from June through August.

The artists, musicians and other vendors are all listed on the website the week of the event, including food trucks. Free admission and nearby parking make this an easily accessible arts event. Shops and restaurants along W. 19th Street are within easy walking distance make a visit into an all-day excursion a breeze.
