We are thrilled to be hosting our annual GIFTY Craft Show & Open House this holiday season. Join us for three days of the best shopping in the Bay Area.
Over the past four months, The Crucible’s founding Open For Business cohort—Amy Alaman, Brandyn Willridge, Cori Pillows, and Komoia Johnson—have been building new skills in the industrial arts while growing their businesses.
Soirée is The Crucible’s once-a-year glittering fundraising event that raises more than $150,000 to fund scholarships and support for our industrial arts education programs.
Thank you to everyone who braved the storms this weekend and made it out to GIFTY 2019! Staff, faculty, and volunteers came together to make our studio shine, and all the months of effort by our vendors leading up to GIFTY fully paid off. The wide range of beautiful and hand-crafted goods, from jewelry to candles to embroidery kits, were the best and brightest collection we've ever had! Check out our favorite GIFTY 2019 photos from the event!
Are you ready for two days of epic shopping, industrial art demos, and family fun? We hope so because GIFTY is just around the corner! GIFTY 2021 is the best place in the Bay to find your holiday gifts made right here by local artists, small businesses, and Crucible faculty.
After our all-virtual event last year, we are thrilled to be hosting our annual GIFTY Craft Show & Open House in person this holiday season. Join us for three days of the best shopping in the Bay Area.

For the past few years, Valerie Fish has found inspiration for her stained glass all around her, be it California poppies or a drawing by her son. As a longtime maker, Valerie knows the importance of art, especially for our youth, and when presented with an opportunity to support The Crucible’s programming through Giving Back at GIFTY, she jumped at the chance!
