Arts and Crafts and Woolly Hats for charity in Bristol

An arts and crafts extravaganza

The Bristol charity, the Children’s Scrapstore, are hosting an arts and crafts extravaganza at their open day on 24 September, to celebrate the installation of new solar and PV panels on the Children’s Scrapstore’s roof, following a grant from the Low Carbon Buildings Trust.

People will be able to get their hands on mountains of play and craft materials which include everything from foam shapes to foil and fabric. This is normally only available to members such as schools, playgroups, children’s centres etc. but for one day only children and families can take part in free workshops and dig out art and craft bargains to take home.

Activities at the Scrapstore, 21 Sevier Street, St Werburghs, will include:

  • Free workshops (no booking required) with craft experts showing children and families how to make the most out of scrap
  • Bristol Pedal Revolution and Biggles Recycles will offer pedal powered woodwork, whilst whipping up smoothies to wash it down with
  • Bike maintenance and mending with Dr Bike
  • Bristol Bike Project drop point, taking donations of old, unwanted bikes to recondition and re-use

The open day will be held at the Scrapstore, 21 Sevier Street, St Werburghs, BS2 9LB from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday 24 September
