Children’s Workshops

We supply materials and trained staff to integrate your classroom or program goals into a fun, educational, hands-on creative arts experience. Our workshop leaders help children transform clean, reusable industrial discards into inventions for science, hats and costumes for plays, games and toys for fun, and much more.

Any of our Events by the Truckload programs can be scaled to meet your needs as a workshop. A workshop leader introduces our materials, our mission, and assists as students use our unique materials to create their own project. We can serve up to 30 participants at once, but consecutive 45 minute to 1 hour groups can be arranged to accommodate more.

At The Scrap Exchange
$100 per hour for up to 15 children, $5 for each additional child.
At your location
$130 per hour with a 2 hour minimum, up to 30 children per group.
