It was a great space and fun to get exposure to a few different art forms in a day. I will definitely be taking more classes at the Crucible!

Nice instructors! The "Taste of Fine Arts" was a good sampling of some of the things that are offered.

What You'll Get

Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

Each "Taste of" experience is comprised of three two-hour art workshops held in one day of exploration. In the Taste of Fine Art experience, up to 24 students dive into introductory courses in glass fusing, glass casting, and jewelry crafting, whereas pupils in the Taste of Industrial Arts experience receive introductory lessons in blacksmithing, MIG welding, and aluminum casting. Both experiences include a lunch of pizza and soda as well as all materials and safety equipment, and students get to take their creations home with them. Experiences are held from 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.; see the above class pages for specific dates.

About The Crucible

With the vision of a bracelet in mind, a student lays a strip of steel over an anvil and begins bending it under the blows of a hammer. Down the hall, another budding artist pours molten glass into a mold, which soon cools into a decorative orb. Each year, more than 5,000 adults and youth take courses at The Crucible in welding, woodworking, glass blowing, jewelry making, ceramics, neon, fire dancing, electronics, and more. As an innovative hub built around the industrial arts, The Crucible is a catalyst for individual growth and vibrant community connections. The studio is also widely recognized as a leader in the Bay Area arts community for its skilled and committed faculty, unique learning experiences, innovative performances and events, and impressive educational facilities.
