We’re so thrilled to share the first edition of our new Crucible Magazine. This 60+ page volume features stories from our industrial arts community, photos of artwork created at our 56,000 sq ft West Oakland studio, and listings for all our classes running throughout the year.
The Crucible is excited to announce that we will also be able to start offering a small number of adult classes—with new health and safety policies in place in accordance with the most up-to-date orders defined by the Alameda County Public Health Department, under the guidance of the state.
We are an industrial arts school 100% dedicated to safety—and we are working hard to implement best practices put forth by The Department of Public Health, Alameda County, the City of Oakland, the State of California, the Center for Disease Control, the federal government and the World Health Organization.
Printing a 52-page catalog uses a lot of trees. And trees are awesome! So instead of making our traditional catalog, we're moving in a new direction. What would have been our 2020 volume 2 catalog has been reimagined [cue sparkly sound effect].
Keep an eye out for our 2020 Volume 1 Catalog due in your mailbox any day! Here is your advanced look at all of our classes running now through March, with additional listings for Youth Spring and Summer Camps and adult weeklong classes through August.
Saturday & Sunday, December 17 & 18

Based on a short story by science fiction author Derek J. Goodman, MACHINE is set in a fiery industrial universe in which workers have sold themselves into a lifetime of servitude. When one worker regains his power of self-determination, the story ignites into an explosive brew of escape plots, alliances, and unlikely love interests.
Experience Machine in style by coming to our Closing Night Gala. On Saturday, January 21, you’ll enjoy fiery foods and fine wines before the show viewing our MACHINE inspired art show and after the show, mix and mingle with performers as we toast our 13th anniversary.
