I think I may have discovered my new favorite place, SCRAP! This nonprofit organization is designed to “inspire creative reuse and environmentally sustainable behavior by providing educational programs and affordable materials to the community.” Artists, teachers, children, anyone who has a creative urge, can access to materials that can be used in their creations.
Inspired by SCRAP in Portland, OR, our local SCRAP is currently located in Arcata, CA – the Jacoby Storehouse – for the month of November. (It’s creatively housed in a ‘pop-up retail space. More on this concept to follow.) If you have even the tinest crafty bone in your body, this is the place for you! Check them out.
