Dorset Scrapstore is a charity that believes in a world where manufacturing waste doesn’t go to landfill - it becomes a low cost community resource for crafting and creativity.
They love inspiring imaginations and saving £’s by providing our local community (schools, clubs, artists, students, families... and... everyone really!) with access to affordable recycled art and craft-making materials.
Their ever-changing supply of clean, safe and often random making materials is kindly donated by local businesses. If Scrapstore didn’t exist and salvage these goodies they would be destined for landfill.
Their Bournemouth branch is located at The Factory Studios and truly is an Aladdin’s Cave where waste from industry becomes a community resource. When you see their array of amazing materials, you will agree that one man’s waste is another’s treasure!
Dorset Scraptore also offer their members access to a range of very reasonably
priced arts supplies (paints, glue, fancy papers, clay etc) and run skills workshops and free making events for
