The Crucible
Begrudge not the power of love this February. Hide not in your house, cowering in your sweats in front of the TV, turning your nose up at heart shaped boxes of chocolates and sneezing every time you see a long stemmed rose in the grocery store. Get in the driver’s seat and give into the promises of romance at The Crucible. Or at least turn up the heat in the foundry.
 
Singles Tasters
For those of you on the lookout for love, we’ve fine-tuned our Taster sessions to double up as mixers. Not only will you be able to explore the wonders of welding, forging, and fusing and slumping, but you’ll also be able to get your flirt on. Take a morning session and then enjoy some lunchtime mingling afterwards. If you decide to take an afternoon session, you can count on wine and cheese to follow...and then who knows where things will go from there?
