Limiting surface contact

Individual tool sets

Many classes have introduced individual tool sets so that students don’t have to share. Each set of tools is sanitized between classes.

Want Something More Customized?

You can explore all our private group options for youth and adults on the pages below.

Our hands-on team building workshops boost morale, lower stress, and stimulate creative thinking. These group classes encourage collaboration and problem-solving, while teaching hands-on industrial arts techniques in welding, glass fusing, flameworking, blacksmithing, and more.

A great way to celebrate your team’s success, a bachelor or bachelorette party, family reunion, birthday, or anniversary.


In our private youth workshops, groups complete welded sculptures, glass tiles and mosaics, robots and gizmos, and glass tube sculptures, while learning basic rules of science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

These workshops are active and will have students energized and excited, encouraging each other creatively. A great way to deepen school curriculum, celebrate birthdays, and more.


Bring The Whole Family

Studies show that partaking in activities as a family leads to greater self confidence, improved academic performance, and increased overall happiness.

The Crucible offers a number of ways to get creative as a family, including family-specific programing, private workshop options, and a wide-range of kid-friendly adult classes families can take together.
