All students must review and adhere to all of The Crucible's Health and Safety Guidelines to best protect our students and staff during this public health crisis. Proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test is required for all students. Starting January 1, vaccinations are required for everyone age 12+. If your class is cancelled by The Crucible due to updated county guidance, we are pleased to offer you a refund for a class or session that cannot run.
For adult classes, youth ages 12+ are welcome to take any adult class for ages 16+, if the parent/guardian is registered in the same class with them. The only exception is for classes in the Glass Blowing Department, where youth must be 14+ to register with their parent/guardian. Adult classes marked 18+ are only for adults over the age of 18. For youth classes, the age requirements stated on the class are generally non-negotiable, unless a student has taken multiple prior classes with us and gets approval from Crucible staff and the class instructor for an exception.
Students who withdraw at least seven days prior to the first scheduled session of a class will receive a full refund, minus the non-refundable $50 registration fee. No portion of tuition will be refunded or transferred if a withdrawal is made less than seven days before the class start date. Classes are subject to cancellation; and in the event that The Crucible cancels a class, students receive information about refund, credit, or transfer. If you are interested in taking a class, register early so we know you're interested! There are no make-up classes. No exceptions. While it is infrequent, instructors are subject to change. See all of The Crucible's Policies and Resources.
At The Crucible, you must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not allowed around machines, equipment, or processes that can produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames. Layers are encouraged as the studio can be very cold or very hot. Additional protective gear will be provided as needed. The CDC has a guide to acceptable cloth masks that help prevent the spread of infection. Bandannas will not be accepted inside The Crucible.
The Crucible is conveniently located at 1260 7th Street, Oakland, CA, just two blocks east of the West Oakland BART station. There is a student parking lot with spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. The lot fills up quickly, and we encourage students to bike or take public transit to class. For weekend or weeklong classes, there are great places to grab food around the area, including at 7th West and Mandela Grocery Cooperative, as well as a microwave on-site at The Crucible for students who wish to warm up packed lunches.

C'Zarriah Davis-Smith

C'Zarriah Torrence-SmithWhen C’Zarriah was still a sophomore at Oakland Tech, she visited The Crucible for one of our four annual Field Trip Days. It was C’Zarriah's first exposure to the industrial arts. At Oakland Tech, C’Zarriah studied drawing and painting, but her visit to The Crucible made her see artmaking in a new way. “That field trip to The Crucible changed my perspective on art,” C’Zarriah explains. “I thought I could only do 2D art, more traditional art. It didn't cross my mind that I could do industrial art like flameworking or glass blowing.” Shortly after her first visit to The Crucible, C’Zarriah learned about available scholarship opportunities for Oakland youth. With support from The Crucible’s scholarship program, she registered for her first class, Youth Glass Flameworking. She couldn’t wait to get started on her new creative journey. “Trying a new medium where you don't know anything or how to best approach it is exciting. My first summer at The Crucible, I discovered that I really, really enjoy flameworking, more than just a hobby. It makes me happy!” Despite having never worked behind a torch before, her instructors were immediately impressed with her drive and commitment to improving. Crucible staff encouraged C’Zarriah to apply for our two-year Fuego Youth Leadership Program, an opportunity where high school students spend four weeks expanding their industrial arts knowledge and developing leadership skills during Youth Summer Camps.
