Scrapstore heads to Winchester

Today (Tuesday 19th December) is our last day of normal opening of the year, but you can also catch us tomorrow as we’ll be heading off to Winchester Christmas Market.

Last year we had the pleasure of running the charity stall at Salisbury Christmas Market for a day, and are looking forward to doing the same in Winchester tomorrow. We’ll have a large variety of Christmas decorations and gifts available to buy, all created from recycled materials of course.

So if you are able to visit us in Winchester tomorrow we very much look forward to seeing you there!

Free Small Group Craft Workshops

We are excited to share that we have received a grant from Greggs which has enabled us to fund local artists to provide a wide variety of workshops for small groups in and around Southampton.

Our tutors all have oodles of experience and ideas!

Examples of some of the activities that we can offer include sewing, jewellery making, masks and costumes, paper lanterns, paper mache, sculpture, birdfeeders for the garden, mosaics, storybooks, puppets, theatre props and more!

We can’t promise that we can visit everyone as we only have a finite amount of funding, so to be in with a chance simply fill in the form below.
