The Crucible is a nice place to be. When I’m in a quiet space with no one around me, I can really focus and get my work done. And you can do so much stuff here! When I get to the end of a project, I feel accomplished and I feel like I’m complete. With my dragon, I spent a lot of time on that and when I finally finished it, I felt really accomplished and I really liked it.

During Summer, Youth Takeover The Studios

The majority of our youth classes are only offered during summer camps! If your child is excited about bending glass into a neon sign, building their own art bike or skateboard, programming microcontrollers—summer is the time to get them in the studio. Here are just a few of our most popular classes, offered only in June and July.
