BAJ Podcast: Scrapstore

Hidden behind a colourful facade on a small estate in South London, you can find a treasure trove of carefully reviewed, sorted and organised ‘waste’ materials. The Work and Play Scrapstore, and its team of passionate volunteers, enable artists, makers and anyone with any use for materials, to come and be inspired. From discarded famous costumes to offcuts of wood, textiles, plastics and much, much more, the Work and Play Scrapstore is a place where anyone with an interest in materials and making could spend hours exploring. Tune in to hear more about the concept of the store, the materials and objects it holds, and how anyone can engage with and support the cause.

About Work & Play Scrapstore

Scrapstore is a fantastic treasure trove, based in southwest London, presenting waste and surplus goods as arts and crafts materials to inspire creativity. You will find paper and paint, textiles and trimmings, buttons and bubble wrap, wood and wondrous props, foam and fine wire and so much more. Stocks vary each week with donations coming from eco-friendly and many big-brand companies.

We’ve been around for over 30 years promoting the green agenda and sustainability. We cut carbon emissions by diverting materials from landfills and incineration.

We reuse over 60 tonnes of waste annually through our Scrapstore, outreach work, volunteering and artistic adventures.
