When an email landed in our inbox about this creative weekend for families, we couldn’t wait to share! It’s such a brilliant concept and if we lived any closer, we’d be all over this, so for those of you that might be able to be in Palm Springs in October, check this out! October 4 – 6, the Fourth Annual Crafting Community will return to the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs!! We’ve been dying to make it to the Ace Hotel anyway, so this seems like a pretty perfect excuse :)
Crafting Community is a unique chance for families to engage each other, and other like-minded families, in a positive environment filled with laughter, imagination and plain old fun. Karen Kimmel, the creator of CC, believes aesthetics and design are not lost on children. They love beautiful things and in fact, beauty helps engage. With that in mind, she works tirelessly to create workshops that will inspire guests of all ages.
Check out some celeb additions to this year’s line-up:
– Renowned Silver Lake handbag designer Clare Vivier will join in the fun, teaching families to make chic, original leather accessories.
– Rene Holguin, the mastermind behind the cult West Hollywood boutique RTH, will return to reprise his popular Family Crest workshop.
– And Christine Schmidt of San Francisco’s Yellow Owl Workshop, will teach families how to carve their own stamps so participants can create their own versions of Yellow Owl’s bold, graphic designs.
The families will also be given a number of chances to connect with nature and play with an underwater photography workshop, custom age-specific workouts by Undefeated and Converse, as well as one-on-one skateboarding sessions with pro-skaters. Relaxation is taken just as seriously as the weekend’s inspiring workshops and activities so after a long day of fun, s’mores are enjoyed under a blanket of desert stars and the late night dance party is presided over by DJ Muggs, formerly of Cypress Hill. I mean, seriously, we want to go kids or not!! ha!
And it’s all thanks to these three ladies: from left to right: Tait Chatmon Alvarez, Stacy Bernstein and Karen Kimmel!
