Work and Play Scrapstore
The Work and Play Scrapstore provides exciting materials for arts and crafts projects. Be creative and save resources at the same time!
The Scrapstore is a re-use charity, based in Tooting, providing clean materials for art, craft, design and creative play, donated as surplus by eco-friendly businesses.
Their members include schools, nurseries, theatre, therapeutic and community groups, students and families. Members pay an annual fee and visit as often as they like to collect materials within the year.
The Scrapstore are always seeking new members, so if you are interested please get in touch and go and have a look round their store. You can find out more details on their website here
They are always keen to hear from local businesses who support their ethos and are interested in receiving a wide variety of materials: paper, fabric, card, plastic, widgets, buttons, trimmings, bubble wrap, foam, paint, carpet samples, wallpaper, fine wire, tubing, rope, surplus art supplies and window dressings – almost anything that is left-over, clean and re-useable and would otherwise be disposed of.
If you are a business and have something that you would like to donate, please get in touch with the Scrapstore. They can collect or you can deliver to their store to suit you.
