Lots going on at the Scrapstore! Lockdown update


Lots going on at the Scrapstore!Creativity in lockdown

The Scrapstore promotes the creative re-use of resources for play, learning, art and more. Though its much loved centre in the Hazelhurst Estate, Blackshaw Road is closed because of coronavirus restrictions, there’s still lots going on.

Gill Upton writes:

“Scrapstore’s Instagram, Twitter and FB channels are buzzing with all the #isolationcreactions our members and volunteers have been making since lockdown.

They have been making bedspreads, Easter bunnies, dresses, rainbows, star quilts, necklaces, peg bags, paper beads, etc etc. In addition, Scrapstore volunteers took home work to do so, one has been winding ribbon, for example, another sorting fabric and so on. They all miss Scrapstore!

Our hope is to get the volunteers back into Scrapstore when we can; firstly to create activity packs for local children on Hazelhurst Estate in order to help the community.
We then want to do a major tidy and prep in readiness for a major re-opening (whenever that is!), with an exhibition of all the isolation creations everyone made during lockdown. We’ll send more detail once we have an opening date”
