Our Scrapstore is the biggest one in Scotland and the only one with access to a shop which carries a large range of arts and crafts and play materials. It is full of interesting and fun scrap materials which have been donated from a wide range of local and national businesses. Without our scrapstore, most of these materials would be sent to landfill, increasing pollution and waste.
Our friendly staff and volunteers are always on hand to offer ideas and inspiration on ways to use the scrap materials in play. We use scrap materials at our workshops, whether it is card crafts; seasonal themes or costume making.
The list below gives a small example of the type of weird and wonderful materials we have in, although stock changes on a regular basis.
- Fabric, lace, thread, buttons, ribbon and trimming – including knicker elastic!
- Paper including silver, gold and sometimes red or blue
- Assorted card including corrugated, cardboard tubes and boxes
- Plastic containers including bottles, ice cream tubs and cups
- Materials including foam, sponge, polypropylene and hessian sacks
- Office stationery including folders, labels and paper clips
- Other materials such as wire, carpet tiles, paint, balloons, coloured cellophane and assorted bags
The list is endless…
The materials available in our scrapstore literally save our members many £££’s on their craft and play items each year, as well as giving children and young people hours of endless fun!
