NEW: Summer Quarter, June 29 – August 23

We have now announced our Summer Quarter adult classes with a stunning new 32-page catalog that you can download from the Spring Index page. All details about our Youth Summer Camps are included and printed copies will be in the mail later this week. We’ve got a wide variety of courses, as always, plus some brand new ones! Enrollment begins FRIDAY, JUNE 5 at 10am for Crucible members and FRIDAY, JUNE 19 at 10am for the general public. Early bird members save 20% when they enroll by July 5.


The Crucible offers an incredible variety of Youth Summer Camps across six 1-week sessions in June, July and August. These are all open for enrollment, however, some classes are filling up!


Coming directly from the Glass Arts Society’s 44th Annual Conference in June, nationally known glass artist Ed Schmid will conduct a weeklong master class at The Crucible! This action-packed, history-filled intensive will explore popular methods of glassmaking from the past two millennia, from small pitchers, perfume bottles and “snuffs”— suggestive of core-formed vessels (complete with a “feathering motif”) — to works of the Cristallo-era and beyond. Runs Monday – Friday, June 8-12 and enrollment is limited.


Spend an evening learning hands-on skills, followed by a social drink with your classmates to compare notes and chill out. Choose from three entry-level disciplines: glass fusing, jewelry or leather. Friday June 19, 6:30-10pm, just $75.
