Making Waste Things Play Things
Welcome to Children's Scrapstore. We are a small charity dedicated to help improve play and creative opportunities for children, young people and adults. With our main store based in Bristol and a small satellite store in Weston Super Mare we offer:
A large warehouse full of varied, colourful and abundant scrap materials fantastic for creative play opportunities at low costs. All of the scrap is safe surplus stock collected directly from local businesses and industry. If you would like to donate business waste please contact us. Please bring your membership card every time you visit as you wont be able to access your membership without it.
Offers a massive range and variety of arts and crafts materials and is open to the public as well as our members. All of our products are competitively priced with all profits going straight back into Scrapstore.
We offer a wide range of resources and services to schools and Early Years settings such as Teachers Nights, CPD Training, Scrapstore PlayPods or educational visits for curriculum sessions.
We offer a range of participatory training programmes and consultancy to schools and early years settings advocating and supporting the development of play.
From 23rd June 2019 we will not have a Satellite Store in Weston-super-Mare. Membership will continue to be valid in our Bristol store which has a full range of arts and craft supplies. We understand that the Scrapstore in Weston-super-Mare is being taken over by Community Scrapstore North Somerset, see their facebook page for more information.
