 Playworks’ Scrapstore has to be seen to be believed!

It’s a warehouse full of wonderful recycled materials, kindly donated from businesses and organisations around Nottingham and beyond. As a result, you’re sure to find everything you need for your arts and crafts or other creative projects – including paper, card, foil, plastic, wool, material, fake fur…you name it, we’ve almost certainly got it!

Best of all, our Scrapstore staff and volunteers are always on hand to help you and give you plenty of ideas for using our materials. Anyone with an interest in play is welcome to visit our Scrapstore including teachers, professionals, community organisations, volunteers and now families too!

The materials are available to buy for a small donation, either by the basket or trolley load, with the money going back into Playworks to help fund our other services.


The Scrapstore also arranges events and activities throughout the year.

To find out more please call Ellen Smith on 0115 958 9199
