Long to be crafty but find youre all thumbs? The annual Ornament-Making Extravaganza at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston can help. Thirty tables, each with its own set of basic materials and instructions for ornament-making, will line the Brown Auditorium Theater for this DIY workshop. The ornament designs are inspired by art hanging in the museum, and artists will be on-hand to facilitate in case any of the 300-plus participants have trouble putting their pieces together. The variety that comes out of that room once people let that creative force come through is just magic, says MFAH public programs manager Margaret Mims. Music by the Gulf Coast Harpers will set the right mood for artistic greatness. Spaces fill up fast, so youll want to line up early. 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Brown Auditorium Theater, Caroline Wiess Law Building, 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org.
