Dorset Scrapstore

Dorset Scrapstore logo

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.

We love inspiring imaginations and saving £'s by providing our local community (schools, clubs, students, individuals and families) with access to affordable recycled craft making materials.

Our ever-changing supply of clean, safe and often random making materials are kindly donated by local businesses. If Scrapstore didn't exist and salvage these goodies in our store, they would be destined for landfill. When you see our array of amazing materials, you will agree with us that one man's waste is another's treasure!

As if that isn't awesome enough, we also offer our members access to a range of very reasonably priced arts supplies (paints, glue, fancy papers, clay etc).
