Safety in the Studio

Material Safety Data Sheets for materials we use in Studio 1801 & 1802 at Foothill College
MSDS sheets

The following manual is produced by Kent Manske at Foothill College. It is a collection of handouts to assist in the safe handling of tools and materials in the Foothill College printmaking studios. The manual serves as a supplement to lectures and demonstrations and is not to be considered definitive or complete by itself. Faculty who use the manual as a teaching tool are ultimately responsible for covering the safe handling of materials with their students.
