Open Studio is a self-led program in the Make N Take room at The Scrap Exchange that is available during regular store hours. A staff member provides an introduction to the room and the materials available. Participants are free to interact with the materials and to explore and create their own projects that they may take home!

What is Make N Take? An eco-friendly creative arts activity!
Our Make-N-Take program provides fascinating and unusual reclaimed materials — including cones and tubes from textile mills, fabric samples from decorators, vinyl sticker paper from sign shops, and so much more. Folks of all ages will have a blast building whatever they can imagine out of the materials we provide! We include tools (scissors, tape, and staplers) for creating along with staff to introduce visitors to our Make N Take room.


$5 per participant for 1.5 hours (additional time may be added for an additional charge, should space be available)
Please call/email ahead of time to make sure that space is available! Groups are required to reserve space in advance!
