What is a Scrapstore?

A scrapstore collects clean, unwanted Materials donated by industry, commerce and individuals and makes them available to the community as a valuable, low cost resource. Our materials are suitable for use in art, craft, education and play.

Dorset Scrapstore run affordable fun and educational Workshops for children and adults which cover a range of activities and focus on skill-learning in a fun and friendly group environment. 

We also have a small shop selling Arts & Crafts Products at very competitive prices.

Dorset Scrapstore is a community-minded charity which aims to support a variety of arts, crafts and recycling events and projects. 


Do you work for or know of a local organisation our members may be interested in? We are currently building a 'Community Links' page on our new website and would like to hear about all things arts and crafty, as well as other community-minded projects or interesting places to visit. To be featured for free please email a logo and web link to: vanessa@dorsetscrapstore.org.uk
