The Womxn* Art Handlers is a group dedicated to the support and growth of POC, queer, non-binary, and womxn* identifying individuals in the professional arts industry as preparators, art handlers, technicians, fabricators, and other industry support roles.
W*AH aims to connect the community through mixers, teach basic skill sets and techniques through workshops, and eventually provide training for interested individuals to learn how to handle and install artwork in partnership with local institutions.

W*AH is hosting a series of workshops based in basic tool and woodworking techniques with a special focus on preparator and fabricator skills sets. In collaboration with SFAI, W*AH will teach four classes during the school semester beginning with very basic material studies to fill travel frame build outs. With a balance of instructional and hands on learning students will gain the knowledge and confidence needed to handle tools, hardware and woodshop machinery.
