SCRAP is a Creative Reuse center and Arts Education Nonprofit founded in 1976 in San Francisco, California. We breathe new life into old arts and crafts supplies and reduce waste by diverting over 200 tons of materials heading to landfill every year.

We will be closed on Monday July 4th.

About the Depot

We pride ourselves in providing equal access to creativity. Our depot in the Bayview is a wonderful "Aladdin's Cave" that provides students, teachers, and artists of all walks of life with access to high quality materials at affordable prices. The materials in our depot change every day, but you’ll always find an abundance of classroom and art supplies, a wide variety of artifacts of inspiring textures, colors, and shapes. The Depot is loosely organized by type of material: paper, wood, metal, glass, fabric, leather, images, office supplies, plastic, natural materials, beads & buttons, arts & crafts, toys, and more.

SCRAP In A Box was conceived in April 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 crisis and “stay at home” mandates. Since then, the program has quickly grown to serve over 300 children and distribute over 1000 art kits.

Learn a variety of embroidery techniques to embellish your own cards, photos and postcards.
