Making art with friends and family is a guaranteed great time! In our 3-Hour Taster classes running this October 8 and 9, you and your loved ones can try out techniques in eight different departments without committing to a multi-week class.
At age 17, an eager High Schooler named Ian Wenck got a waiver to take an adult Blacksmithing class at The Crucible. On his way to the Smithy he passed the Machine Shop and was immediately intrigued.
Have you ever wondered what exactly is a crucible? Here, we cover different types of crucibles and how The Crucible got its name.
Somehow, it’s already October, and that means it is officially spooky season at The Crucible. But how do we celebrate the holiday while practicing social distancing? Art of course! Ghouls, goblins, and ghosts are a regular source of inspiration for our community of makers.
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.
Spring is the season of reinvention and reimagination—what better time to stretch your creative muscles and try something new! On March 28 and 29 we’re hosting 21 3-Hour Taster classes, each a perfect opportunity to explore a new art form without the deeper commitment of a full course.
It's finally here–our early member registration is live. Hundreds of classes running April–June just opened but the first two weeks of registration are open exclusively to Crucible members before public registration opens on Tuesday, February 4.
Using a 3D printer for fabrication has become increasingly popular and allows artists and makers to create complex and intricate shapes that would be difficult to create by hand. We’re about to wrap on our latest eight-week session of Digital Fabrication and Foundry. During class, students learned to build 3D models and print multiple test pieces before committing to their final design, which they cast into metal in our Foundry last week. Wondering how they do it? Get inspired by this 5-step how-to!
