What are my options?

The Crucible has many workshops to fit your organization’s budget and schedule.

In a 2-hour Mini-Workshop, your team gets a taste of one technique, such as welding, blacksmithing or glass flameworking.

A 3–4 hour Half-Day Workshop lets your teammates complete a small individual art project or collaborate on a group piece.

In a 6-hour Full-Day Workshop, your group can work in multiple areas, such as torch cutting and welding, to create individual or group projects.

In a 6–8 hour Design & Build Workshop, your group collaborates and designs a single large art project using multiple techniques.

Mini-Workshops start as low as $800. Design and build packages, including lunch and a wine-and-cheese art reception, start at $3500.

Catering & Photography Available
The Crucible can provide lunch and snacks for your team or an elegant wine-and-cheese reception following your workshop. A reception is a great way to end a day of hard work, and gives your team a chance to unwind and discuss what they learned and experienced in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. You can also book a photographer to document your day.

“We are very happy with our final product! It was really a great experience; even though we all worked on different parts of the project in different locations we had great conversation, lots of laughing and were anxious to see our finished product. We sent pictures around the office and everyone was very impressed with what can be done at The Crucible!”
