Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Houston Overview

The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft or the HCCC was founded in the year 2001 and has since worked towards educating people about craft; about its history, process and product. It focuses specifically on art work made from glass, metal, wood, clay, fiber, and other recycled materials.

The Craft Garden, which is divided into 4 sections (baskets, textiles, papers and dyes), is where visitors get to see the planting and production of materials. There are one-hour long guided tours which take visitors around the various exhibitions and the Craft Garden, and allow them to interact with the resident artists. The Artist Residency Program offers artists a space to create their art, irrespective of the medium. It also hosts several events which allow visitors to interact with different artists, learn about the exhibits and much more.
