In-person Workshop: Homecoming Mums
Mums are staples for high-school homecoming celebrations across Texas and a rite of passage for many students. In this on-site, hands-on workshop, learn how to build your mum using traditional and non-traditional techniques. Bring your own ribbons and trinkets inspired by your high-school colors and activities to make your one-of-a-kind mum. We will provide the space, know-how, and basic materials, so you can bring your mum to life and display maximum high-school spirit!
When you visit HCCC, be sure to check out [Mums], 2021, by Antonius-T?n Bui, in the Case Study space. Bui created their own version of homecoming mums, which reference the Texas tradition, yet pay homage to the artist’s own history and background as a member of the Vietnamese American community.
Note: This event is subject to cancellation in response to current COVID-19 conditions. The workshop takes place in person and inside the HCCC building. All participants must wear a mask when inside the building and practice social distancing during the workshop. Space is limited to a maximum of 15 participants, who will be spaced more than six feet apart.

No experience necessary. Basic supplies will be provided, but we ask that you bring ribbons in your high-school colors and any specific trinkets that you wish to add to your mum, such as band trinkets, footballs, initials, etc. We will provide white ribbon and basic trinkets, such as “Class of 2022” and bells.
