This summer, learn to be a maker! Our “Wave 5” industrial arts classes run July 9 – August 26 with amazing options in welding, blacksmithing, glass blowing, jewelry, woodworking, neon, leather working or any of 20 departments. Check out our Volume 3 catalog, which you can download at left, and visit the Adult Class Index for the most current listings. Some classes are offered as weekly sessions, others as weeklong intensive workshops and some take place in a single exciting night!

The Crucible offers a fantastic array of classes geared to youth ages 8-11 and 12-17. Kids have hands-on creative fun making art, while learning real-world skills! They can enroll in any of 15 disciplines including ceramics, glass blowing, hot wheels, jewelry, kinetics, welding and others. Youth Summer Camps are offered in six 1-week sessions, now through August 5. Morning and afternoon camps are available, as well as Youth After Care from 4-6 pm. Check out the Youth Class Index page, enroll online or call 510.444.0919.

We have over 20 areas of study (departments) at The Crucible. Some are pretty exotic, like Glass Fusing, so we’ve made it easy to explore these specialized disciplines with our new department pages! Just hover over the “Adult” tab in the upper left corner of this page, and scroll through the departments in the dropdown menu. On each department page, classes are listed alphabetically. Once you’ve narrowed down an area of interest, check out the Adult Class Index or the Volume 3 catalog, with Wave 5 class schedules.
