This Saturday we are excited to kick off show #2 in our 3rd season of AOK (Art of Kraft) 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, painters, jewelry makers, and much more.

Our first show of the 3rd season that took place last month (June of 2013).  The highlighted artists were Chris Sanchez, Casen Creation, Sven, The Beauty Bandit, and Ashley Coy.  Free crafts were available and presented by The Coachella Valley Art Scene (of course!).  Alf Alpha spun records, kept us grooving the whole time.  BIRBA was the beautiful venue and host that served up amazing cocktails and yummy food dishes all event long (oh and kept the misters going – nice!).

This month we are going for a new theme that we haven’t done before – AN ALL GIRL CRAFT EXHIBIT!!!  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 lady crafters that we admire who live and create here 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, and more.  We are ultra excited, to say the very least.

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!!

(You’ll find us at the craft table, of course)
