Arbutus is participating the Community Foundation’s Give Local campaign to implement a woodshop safety training program and improve public access to the woodshop.
The public has long asked for more access to the woodworking equipment and we are very close to having a complete training program available to the public. We are also requesting support to provide more public access to the studio. Please consider supporting this much needed community asset! Overcoming this hurdle will help all aspects of Arbutus thrive while meeting the community’s needs!
Woodshop safety skills are a critical part of increasing individual and community resiliency, opening up creative opportunities, utilizing local resources and developing a sustainable, local economy. Our woodshop has been underutilized due to the need for a safety training program and oversight.
Help us reach this goal! Then come in and enjoy our creative studios! Feel great about opening up this opportunity for others and keeping these skills alive! When our facility is better-utilized, it helps all of Arbutus thrive!
