Ace Palm Springs to Host Arts and Crafts Parties with Potato Prints
In case you didn’t notice, it’s practically mid-July already! Which means if you’re not spending your weekends relaxing poolside and trying your hand at summer camp-style crafts, you might as well chalk up summer ’09 as a waste.
OK, so maybe that’s a tad overly dramatic. Our point is: Pools plus craftytime equals awesome (maybe not as amazing as boozy sno-cones, but still pretty great). Don’t believe us? Check out The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs this weekend. July 11th and 12th, the Ace is hosting an “all-inclusive art making weekend” at the hotel’s Swim Club, hosted by L.A. artists Karen Kimmel and Apple Via.
Arts & Crafts will run poolside from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., including handmade projects that include cardboard looms, macramé, mosaics, potato prints, potholders, sprouted gardens, stencils, and more.
Package bookers can craft to their heart’s content, plus enjoy family-style breakfast and a hotel room for two nights. Rates start at $557 for the two-day package; book using code ARTACE 09. Ten percent of proceeds benefit Children in the Arts.
