GIFTY, The Crucible’s annual Craft Show & Open House returns this December 2-3. Join us for two days of the best shopping in the Bay Area.
Thank you to the thousands of visitors who attended our annual GIFTY craft fair and open house this past weekend! With rain forecasted for both days, we weren’t sure what to expect. But gloomy weather wasn’t enough to keep you from supporting the best makers and small businesses in the Bay Area.
We are thrilled to be hosting our annual GIFTY Craft Show & Open House this holiday season. Join us for three days of the best shopping in the Bay Area.
Thank you to everyone who braved the storms this weekend and made it out to GIFTY 2019! Staff, faculty, and volunteers came together to make our studio shine, and all the months of effort by our vendors leading up to GIFTY fully paid off. The wide range of beautiful and hand-crafted goods, from jewelry to candles to embroidery kits, were the best and brightest collection we've ever had! Check out our favorite GIFTY 2019 photos from the event!
Are you ready for two days of epic shopping, industrial art demos, and family fun? We hope so because GIFTY is just around the corner! GIFTY 2021 is the best place in the Bay to find your holiday gifts made right here by local artists, small businesses, and Crucible faculty.
Following the challenges of the last two years, The Crucible is committed to hosting an equitable and inclusive 2021 GIFTY Craft Show and Open House. Thanks to Square, the financial services and mobile payment company, The Crucible is offering up to $5,000 in GIFTY vendor scholarships for the first time.
After our all-virtual event last year, we are thrilled to be hosting our annual GIFTY Craft Show & Open House in person this holiday season. Join us for three days of the best shopping in the Bay Area.
Welcome to The Crucible’s community newsletter! This is a space where we share opportunities like scholarships, Field Trip updates, job opportunities, programming updates, community events, and more.
For the past few years, Valerie Fish has found inspiration for her stained glass all around her, be it California poppies or a drawing by her son. As a longtime maker, Valerie knows the importance of art, especially for our youth, and when presented with an opportunity to support The Crucible’s programming through Giving Back at GIFTY, she jumped at the chance!
This has been an especially challenging year for makers and small businesses. So we knew it was important to continue our 17-year-long tradition of GIFTY, our annual craft show. But this year, for the first time, GIFTY is going virtual. Starting November 9, we'll be highlighting over 80 Bay Area makers and small businesses selling things like original jewelry, handcrafted soaps, sculpted glassware, and so much more.
