At our Fall Open House, The Crucible aims to delight the most discerning locavores and foodies. We've invited Oakland's best home-grown food vendors such as Fist of Flour, Tina Tamale and small-batch artisans from the food business incubator, Kitchener Oakland, to cater to artisan food lovers. Get an inside look at how artisan tableware is made from cups in our glass department, to silverware straight from the smithy. Our open houses are a wonderful way to experience the excitement of The Crucible's 56,000 sq. ft. studio where furnaces roar and sparks fly.
We will also have live demonstrations and instructional pieces from Sacred Wheel Cheese and Specialty Market, RoastCo Coffee, People's Grocery, Oakland Chocolate Company and Pepple's Donuts. Chef Peter Jackson will demonstrate how to butcher a hog. See homemade tortillas and hand tossed pizzas being made. Learn about Periscope Cellars Wines and discuss beer making with the brew masters from Linden Street Brewery.
A fun, free day for the whole family! Our open houses are a wonderful way to experience the excitement of The Crucible's 56,000 sq. ft. studio. Check out exciting live demonstrations in all of our studios and classrooms while you wander through our student and faculty art show displaying the creativity of The Crucible artist community.
