Artisan's Asylum Gown Initiative
The Artisan's Asylum Gown Initiative, or Gowntown, is producing Tyvek isolation gowns and shipping them to protect medical workers all over the US. We're just over halfway to our goal of 30,000 gowns by the end of September. We run Monday-Friday, in three shifts, 10-1, 2-5, and 6-9. Shifts are subject to change based on availability. Tasks are primarily a variety of folding that can be done from a standing or seated position, with the opportunity to run some power tools if desired.
Gowntown has recently been featured on/in WGBH, Fox25 Boston, and Dig Boston.
