Grab your creative juices and come visit us at the Austin Creative Reuse Center.

The first section of the center will open Saturday, September 26 from 10am – 2pm.

From then on, the center will be open every Thursday night from 6pm-8pm and every Saturday from 10am-2pm.

We’ll be extending hours and adding sections to the center over the next few months.  Please be patient with us as we continue to work through our processes and the pricing of the materials.

Our first workshop will be a cape making activity on Saturday, October 31.  We’ll be posting more details in the coming week.

 

A big thank you to all of the volunteers that have assisted in setting up the center.  There have been many wonderful individuals showing up weekly and several one day events with groups from Little Helping Hands, Americorps and eBay (United Way Fall Day of Caring).

What do you mean by sections?

We currently have the front space open to customers. It is filled with lots of unique and special items including beads, buttons, fabric, markers, canvases and decorative tile. We’ve added some items like corks and paint chip samples to that area for now.

We will be adding additional sections that are focused more on bulk quantities of items like cork, cd cases, small containers, and carpet squares.  We’ll also be setting up workshop spaces for adults and children.  And we would also like to incorporate a gallery and consignment areas.

What types of materials can I donate?

We accept a variety of materials. Please review our materials donation list for details.

I have materials to donate, when can I bring them to the center?

You may bring donations during open hours.

How can I volunteer?

We will need volunteers more than ever now that we have a center to take in more materials. We are planning volunteer events to assist with the setup of the center and to sort materials.  We’ll post these on our events calendar.  A great way to be notified of the events and our volunteer opportunities is to sign up for our volunteer newsletter.
