What do you get when you cross a bingo game with a piñata? If you’re one of the 300-plus guests attending this weekend’s Crafting Community camp at Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, it’s one of a dozen super-duper prizes. During the opening fiesta party tonight, what’s sure to be a rollicking session of bingo will be called. Each winner will have the chance to take a swing at one of the beautiful piñatas handmade by the craft elves in studio Karen Kimmel, located in Atwater Village, an enclave in the northeast of downtown Los Angeles. As on of the co-founders of Crafting Community, the collaborative artist’s signature aesthetic is all over the weekend event. Inside each piñata is a prize much better than candy!
Our signature wares are all over the prize we’re awarding one lucky winner as we’re reprising the A+R Toy Lab for Crafting Community. We’ve put together a $530 basket o’ fun! Scroll through the slide show above to see what we’re gifting from a few of our wonderful partners this weekend, including Tegu, Kiko+, Blanca Apodaca, David Weeks for Areaware, ForeverLamp for Alessi and Haptic Lab. We’re also adding an A+R Gift Card valued at $150! Play at home! Throughout the weekend, we’ll be giving away individual contents. All you have to do?
