The 2016 Tools to Table Open House will feature art, activities, and demonstrations centered on the tools and techniques of creating and consuming food and drink. See cocktail glasses being made in our glass blowing department, jump on a bicycle for some pedal-powered eats, learn how forks and spoons are hammered in the smithy, batter up our Crucible-designed waffle iron, and more. All while enjoying delicious foods and beverages from local businesses. Join us Saturday, September 10, from noon to 5pm.

Become a maker! Our Wave 6 and 7 classes are open for registration, with amazing options in any of our 20 departments. Our Fall schedule includes classes only offered during this time of year, including drawing, mechanical sculpture, and timberframing. Check out our Volume 4 catalog or 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 ages 8-17. Youth can enroll in any of 15 disciplines including ceramics, glass blowing, bike shop, jewelry, kinetics, and welding. While the classes are undeniably fun, students can apply what they’ve learned here–creative problem-solving, scientific principles, and teamwork–at school and beyond. Check out the Youth Class Index page to see classes currently available for registration. Need-based scholarships are available.

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, find the current schedule in our Volume 4 catalog or visit the Adult Class Index page.

Our creative, hands-on Team Building Workshops are fun, effective offsite experiences designed for Bay Area organizations. Our industrial arts will get your teams off the computer and having fun with glass fusing, flameworking, welding, blacksmithing, plasma cutting, jewelry making, woodturning and much more. Workshops are customizable and can meet the needs of any group, from as few as six to over 100 people. To learn more, please email us at teambuilding@thecrucible.org or call (510) 444-0919 x125.
