Hot Couture 2015

Hot Couture 2015 is scheduled for January 9 & 10. Here’s a fun review of 2014’s Hot Couture – two nights of flaming fashion and fun, with an awesome donated soundtrack from Gypsy rockers Gogol Bordello.

Maker Faire Madness at The Crucible

KRON4 came to The Crucible this fall and spent a day filming makers, artists and youth, capturing some of the excitement and creativity that comes pouring out when people start working with their hands and having fun.

The Cup Class

Long-time Crucible faculty Kier Lugo and Arlo Fishman star in this immensely popular video demonstrating the ins and outs of making glass cups in The Crucible’s hot shop. You can sign up for the cup class here.

Fall Weekend Classes

No room for weeknight classes? Weekends are a great way to get your creative on. Many students prefer these classes as a way to “stay in the zone” while learning a new skill or technique. There are plenty of beginner classes in blacksmithing, glass blowing, jewelry making, MIG welding, LED’s and much more.

Three-Hour Tasters

For only $135, try a fun, exciting exploration of industrial arts with the commitment to a full weekend or weeknight schedule of classes.  Fall session tasters all take place the weekend of Dec. 6 & 7.
