We are so excited to kick off another season of AOK this Saturday at Birba in Palm Springs!! This season we really took it upon ourselves to reach out and find some amazing, talented and unique crafters/artists out there in the Coachella Valley. What did we find?…well, a little bit of wood and wig works, photography and fashion, iPhone art and mixed media masterpieces.
Our first show of the season (June of 2013) was a success. The show highlighted Chris Sanchez, Casen Creation, Sven, The Beauty Bandit, and Ashley Coy. Free crafts of course were available and presented by The Coachella Valley Art Scene. Alf Alpha spun records. BIRBA served up amazing cocktails and yummy food dishes.
This month, we are going for an entirely different theme – AN ALL GIRL KRAFT SHOW!!! We haven’t seen this in the desert yet and thought it would be fun to make it happen. So, we called upon some amazing crafters in the desert: Angela Kinley, Tea with Iris, Maya Kalabic, Julie Levine and Kristin Winters. Each of these fantastic ladies will showcase their latest creations; clothes, art works, wood works, glitter pop, paintings, journals, jewelry, etc. To say the least, we are ultra excited.
Read the descriptions below to find our more about AOK (Art of Kraft) and take a sneak peek at some of our featured artists for the month of May!
Looking forward to seeing you there!!
