Play Dirty: Crafting Community at Ace Palm Springs

Forget Coachella. There in the desert, unleashed, raw imagination is at the core of an upcoming gathering lead by renown artists Karen Kimmel, Tanya Aguiñiga, Cathy Callahan of Cathy of California fame, bag designer Clare Vivier and teeming with underwater photography, skateboarding, sneaker customization and smores.

That’s right, pack up the kiddies and SPF 50: it’s the third annual Kimmel Kids+Splendid Crafting Community at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, April 27-29.

We are thrilled to be a part of this year’s fest with the first A+R Toy Lab. Besides our current range of modern playthings, we’ll also be unveiling fun stuff for the first time in the U.S. The A+R Toy Lab will also feature a lending library supplied by our pals at Harper Collins, Blue Apple Books and Simon & Schuster.

The weekend is filled with interactive workshops, from leather working to creating succulent gardens, morning yoga to a desert disco. And sneaker valhalla Undefeated and The Yard are hosting a ping-pong tournament.

There are some slots still open, so get your skates on and reserve yours for la familia fast. It’s the coolest place to be under the scorching desert sun this season!
