Across the Bay Area, public health officials are encouraging businesses to cancel or postpone non-essential public gatherings due to the risk of community spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus. For this reason, The Crucible is postponing our upcoming Spring Open House, originally planned for Saturday, March 21.
We were thrilled to host nearly 1,600 visitors to our studio over the weekend for our 2019 Fall Open House. Industrial arts enthusiasts of all ages took to hands-on activities like wet welding, stone carving, and Shibori Indigo Dyeing.
This weekend, you helped us set an all-time-high Open House attendance record, with over 1,600 attendees! Local artists and Crucible faculty sold their work, our expert faculty gave demonstrations in all 19 of our departments, and kids were busy playing Bingo to win a bike.
Join us in remembering and celebrating Raphael Allen’s dedication to education, and help us raise funds to further expand access to the arts through the Raphael Allen Fund.
Saturday, March 30, 2019 • 12 - 5pmJoin us this Spring for a taste of what you can create in the fine and industrial arts, with discounted classes, exciting demonstrations, a carefully curated Art Gallery, and more!
