What is Make N Take? Make N Take is an eco-friendly creative arts activity. Participants use our fascinating collection of materials to create anything they can imagine. We provide materials along with scissors, tape and staplers to create with. Creativity and imaginations are unleashed as students make rocket ships, costumes, robots, sculptures, and more. Participants keep whatever they make. This program is best for ages 5 and up.

Here are options for Field Trips at The Scrap Exchange:

  1. Open Studio: This is a self-led program in the Make N Take room at The Scrap Exchange. A staff member provides an introduction to the room and the materials available. Participants are free to interact with the materials in order to create a unique project that they can take home with them.
  2. Workshop: Workshops are staff-led and priced based on the number of participants and the length of the program. A staff member will introduce the group to basic concepts of creative reuse, explore the materials to be used in the program, and facilitate creativity throughout the length of the program. (This program requires a $30 deposit)
  3. Tour: Groups can request to be given a tour of our facilities  in addition to our open studio/workshop activities


Open Studio:
$5 per participant for 1.5 hours (50 student maximum)

Workshop Rate for up to 30 participants per hour:
