Crafty much?

There's a pocket park, just behind Main and nearby the long ribbon of concrete that's the Southwest Free-for-All.  Belonging to the Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, the Craft Garden started in 2003 as a collaboration among artists and gardeners.  Divided into sections for plants to make baskets, textiles, dyes, and papers, it's part and parcel of the craft process. After a drought year and a subsequent hot summer, it's not looking too bad.   Plus, the fountain, shade, and deck are a welcome respite in any slog between Med Center/Hermann Park and Downtown.
