Admit it, you’ve always had an itch to learn fire dancing, art welding or jewelry crafting. Anyone with a creative burn ought to check out the classes available at Oakland’s Crucible, a longtime center of pyrotechnic studies and performances.

Classes are small with considerable instructor/student interaction and can be as short as a weekend or as long as a full semester. The Crucible has an impeccable safety record. Prices are high, tending to be in the $200+ range.

The new semester starts early next year but you can get a sense of their aesthetic at the Holiday Art Show Dec. 12 & 13.
