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.

We've had an unusual donation of eucalyptus bark which would be wonderful for use in natural materials art projects, or a collage of a garden or rainforest! Also in stock: tiles, spongy foam (great for soundproofing!), purple foam, reflectors, plastic flowers... and much much more!
