Dive deep in this beginning and continuing level youth workshop. Students take an immersive step into weeklong study, becoming young artisans along the way. Learn to fuse, cut, bend, and shape metal in this intensive introduction to stick welding, also known as arc welding, and oxy-acetylene torch cutting. Guidance will be given on the safe and effective operation of welding equipment. You will also be exposed to theory, principles, and extensive techniques that let you design and create your own independent projects. No experience necessary.

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.
At The Crucible, you must dress safely and intelligently. Arrive for class in all natural fiber clothing, closed-toe shoes, and long pants. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not recommended around open flames. Layers are encouraged as the the studio can be very cold or very hot.
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 based on enrollment. 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.
