CERF+ awarded twenty Get Ready Grants to individuals and groups in craft disciplines to implement safety measures, safeguard studios, and protect careers. Allied Woodshop is pleased to have received a $1,500 grant to improve fire safety in our shop. We will use the funding to purchase flammables cabinets, fire-safe trash cans, fire extinguishers, and a ventilation system for our finishing room. We will also create a cheat sheet for the safe disposal of solvents and finishes and a curriculum to educate collective members, instructors, and students about the safe storage and disposal of flammable materials.
We would like to thank CERF+ for the work that they do to make the world a safer place for artists and craftspeople. If you would like to learn more or apply for a Get Ready Grant, click here. The deadline for the next application cycle is November 30, 2018.
