The Crucible took Blacksmithing forge, raku kiln, and fire down to San Mateo for Maker Faire’s 13th annual Maker Faire!
The most ingenious minds and inventors will gather this weekend at Maker Faire! With hundreds of demonstrations and hands-on activities to choose from at Maker Faire, we selected a few Makers that you cannot miss.
On April 7, The Crucible opened it’s doors for our annual Fire & Light Soirée and Art Auction, a night of fire, feasting, and fundraising.
Our studios are still buzzing from Saturday’s Spring Open House! We had record attendance for a Spring Open House, with over 1,100 attendees, and our expert faculty gave demonstrations all day. From fresh waffles to steam bent wood, this was an Open House for the books!
In place of Hot Couture this year, we are focusing on preparing for our upcoming events and continuing to increase our investment in our educational mission to make the industrial arts more accessible to youth and the Greater Bay Area.
We are still riding high from GIFTY 2017 this weekend! Over 70 local artists and Crucible faculty sold their work, making for perfect holiday shopping, and our expert faculty gave demonstrations. With appearances by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and Santa Claus, this was certainly an unforgettable weekend!
GIFTY will be packed with opportunities for you to shop from 60+ local vendors, eat delicious food, learn from faculty demos, create small gifts, win amazing prizes, enjoy live music, and more! Check out this helpful flow chart to create your game plan.
We hope our 2017 Fall Open House was just as much fun for you as it was for us. Our expert faculty gave demonstrations and answered questions in nineteen different departments, Crucible artists sold and showed their work, youth discussed what a 'creative workforce' meant to them, and Villa Rocio's fed the masses with delicious $2 tacos.
The Crucible took our forges, furnaces, and foundry down to San Mateo for Maker Faire’s 11th annual extravaganza!
