During the school holidays we often hold weekly workshops in store for different age groups. We have a variety of themes and the price includes all materials. Keep an eye on our ‘Breaking News’ page for our next workshops, once the pandemic is over. School Holiday Workshop 'Masks'
Kids Crafty Kids Club is a ‘drop in session’ at Scrappies. Drop-in with your kids any time between 10am and 12pm for a craft session. You’ll be amazed what your children can come up with! Membership is £3.00 per year and club ‘subs’ are 50p, on the day, per child. Crafty Kids usually runs every Saturday and you can drop by for an hour or stay all morning. Look at new materials and come up with fun things to make. Children should be over five and accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Crafty Kids Club is closed right now due to the pandemic.  We will announce its re-opening on this site and on our Facebook page.

We’ll be delighted to help you organise a party in the store. The children will make something exciting from recycled materials to take home. Parties cost £60 for a two hour session.  You can have a maximum of 8 children.  Party Craft Bags, to take home, are available at £1 each.

For more information on parties or to book your party get in touch on 01694 328 508, email or download our Party Booking Form.

FrankiesWeddingCroppedI visited your fantastic scrapstore at the start of the summer with a group of children on a holiday camp. Whilst there I mentioned that I needed some fabric for tablecloths at my wedding (this was actually a real headache and had been bothering me for ages). Anyway, you were all so helpful and then one particularly helpful lady found the most amazing bolt of fabric. After chopping up and hemming 20 table cloths, it looked absolutely perfect. I thought you might like to see some photos.

As an end to the story I am now lending out the table cloths to other weddings and raising a little bit of money for charity in the process. Thank you so much to everyone at scrappies. The children absolutely loved coming home with a bag of goodies, and I adored my roll of fabric! I had a wonderful day at your store, and can’t wait to visit again.

Thank you so very much!
