Free art supplies for community projects

This group also has the best plastic tubs of various sizes for organizing small supplies or holding liquids. These containers are great for dye baths, mixing paper maché paste, containing a splatter painting station, and more.

Obviously, you want these supplies ONLY if they have NEVER been used, or even entered an exam room. Whether it is a wire sculpture or paper maché, nothing prepares three-dimensional artwork for presentation quite like a base. Sure, cardboard bases work fine in a pinch, but wooden bases add a level of legitimacy and beauty all students seem to love.

So where do you get free wood? If you can find a local cabinet maker, lumber supplier, carpenter, or construction person, inquire about what they do with their wood scraps. Chances are they are routinely pitching scrap wood in small sizes and shapes into a dumpster.

Offer to bring a large box to their place of business, and have your students decorate the outside with pictures and requests for scraps. With a little luck, you will be able to arrange a semi-regular pick-up schedule, loading your vehicle with free sculpture wood for your students. The manager of your local recycling plant is definitely the holy grail of who to know when it comes to supply donation.

This person is routinely contacted to recycle odd items for the business community. We receive lots of donations and we try to sell what we can to generate an income, with any surplus being made available for free to community groups and care homes etc. It is now generally accepted that creativity is good for wellbeing and mental health, and yet many places are not allocated a budget for supplies, so we support where we can.

We supplied free quality art paper from Pink Pig and various drawing materials for family activities taking place in The Ridings Shopping Centre in Wakefield. Their forward-thinking approach sees empty retail units being used as community spaces dedicated to events for local people, in this case it was family arts and crafts workshops run by Wakefield Council.

Pink Pig are a local sketchbook manufacturer who have supported us a lot by sending us their offcuts, and the art supplies were donated by individuals so that we are able to support groups and events like this, bringing some colour to families!

We were able to supply 4 boxes of donated embroidery threads to a cross stitch group based at a community centre in Wakefield. Over time we also donated odd bits of aida fabric, more threads and patterns, plus members of the group were able to purchase further low-cost supplies for themselves in our community shop.

Thanks to crafters donating their unwanted supplies to us, we were able to supply free card making supplies to Managing Dyslexia, a community group based at Sandal library in Wakefield. They were an existing support group who felt they wanted to add crafting into their activities for the mental health benefits it brings.

They don't stop there though, the group then fundraise with the handmade cards they have been able to make - we were thrilled to spot the fruits of their labour on display at a wellbeing event! We were able to supply a free Cuttlebug die-cutting machine to an established craft group based at a community centre.

The group has fantastic attendance and has existed for a few years, so we were more than happy to pass on a donated Cuttlebug along with unwanted magazine freebie dies to get them started. If they find an entire Cuttlebug on eBay for a better price than buying the plates alone, they can just return the one we gave them and we can put it back into our stock, but they can still benefit from our free magazine dies and of course our reduced cost dies, from donations.

It's all good. Our aim is to make creativity accessible for all but especially for those on a budget. We were at a wellbeing event at St Swithun's Community Centre promoting creativity as a means to positive mental health and wellbeing.

We were going to promote our new Creative Hub and shop, but we decided against running a stall to buy cheap craft supplies and took lots of freebies instead! We had some lightly used supplies piling up in boxes that needed further sorting, which would take time, so we just took those along.

Brilliant change of plan, because even though we didn't raise any funds, the experience was priceless: lots of excited kids and adults rummaging about in stuff that we couldn't put out in the shop but which they thought were great!

So, as well as helping us clear down some stock and gain some space, it turns out kids are really good at sorting through boxes of wool, card, paper, toppers and gems for pure enjoyment! Some of the kids were rather resourceful: after a lot of commotion and excitement at what they were finding, suddenly they disappeared only to return with some free tote bags being given out free at another stall, meaning they could now carry all their free goodies!

Best of all, they came up with creative ideas on the spot - it seems kids love mirri card it has a surface you can see your reflection in Our rummage box had some die cut frames and mirri silver circles As it was almost Mother's Day, they then rummaged for alphabet stickers for their names or 'Mum'.

They loved it, we loved it and it was all made possible because people had sent in lightly used but unwanted papercraft supplies. Unwanted magazine freebies were a hit too - especially the books of papers you sometimes get with magazines, and the mini card kits.

Crafters send them to us because they subscribe to craft magazines but don't always like or need the freebies that come with them - however they are brilliant for us because they are in wrappers and are therefore 'new' packs we can give out for free.

At first the kids would take a single piece or two, but we could say take a handful! They couldn't believe it. How does a child flourish in their creativity if they don't have access to paper to be able to practice and perfect?

Some of our printable craft supplies and donated magazine freebies were given out to the public at a mental health event held at St Catherine's church, Wakefield. The event was put on by the Richmond Fellowship for local people to see the types of support and activities available to them.

We approached it from a 'self care' point of view since engaging in creative activities can help your wellbeing. We had various easy card making printables available so that people could take them away and get creative when they got home. Kids art and craft supplies were given to a group of vulnerable children and young people attending a summer group over 5 weeks.
