All sorts! We get all manner of things donated ranging from
complete items to off cuts from industrial processes. We take in anything safe
that can re-used in a creative way. We normally have a good stock of card and
paper in all sizes and colours. We get a big supply of rip stop (hot air balloon
material) every week in bright colours and sizes. Other items include
coloured netting, foam, wood, books, CDs, plastic put and tubs, ring binders,
stationery...the list goes on. Have a look at our
pinterest site to find
out what kind of things are in the warehouse.
We ask for donations for resources taken away. For a full supermarket trolley of scrap the suggested
donation is just £15.50 We suggest you pay less money for less than a trolley of scrap and more
money for more than a trolley of scrap.
No. . . .
Artrageous is open to the public and all profits go to support the Children's Scrapstore charity.
Yes . . . there's over 100 Scrapstores in the UK.
We all operate differently i.e. opening times, types of resources, membership
criteria, cost of scrap. Have a look at the
directory of Scrapstores for more information.
There are also Scrapstore elsewhere in the world. One of the first was in Reggio
Emilia in Italy that grew from the destruction of war. The town re-used what was
left after bombings to build a school and the make and do and re-use attitude
grew from there.
Well . . . we don't run workshops as we are more of
a resource centre. However, we do run Super
