Grand (Re) Opening – Arts! Arcata this Friday!


After a solid year of diverting over 13 tons of materials from the waste stream,  Arcata’s first and only nonprofit creative reuse center, SCRAP Humboldt, has expanded their services and their space. To kick off Arts! Arcata, on Friday, June 13 SCRAP invites the community to celebrate the opening of The (Re)Workshop  and to tour their new, larger space. At 6 p.m. the Arcata Chamber of Commerce will help the 2013 Green Business of the Year cut the ribbon and Filigree Cakes, Cookies, and Pastries has graciously donated a delicious organic cake to help sweeten the event.

The displays used in the creative reuse center were all custom designed by David Bethuy and built from pallets and wood donated by Miller Farms Nursery.  There are a number of well-designed art installation pieces that highlight how to reuse materials like pallets, 16mm film, floppy disks, yarn and interior design samples.

The  (Re)Workshop is SCRAP Humboldt’s creative education studio. The (Re)Workshop is a space for makers, crafters, Inventors, artists, DIY-ers, Innovators, reusers, designers and the community to explore, learn, and experiment with materials and ideas. The (Re)Workshop will host Camp SCRAP this summer (First session is on June 16), classes ( which start on June 18), birthday parties (starting in August), and is available for rent as well.  To propose a class proposals or to find out how to rent The (Re)Workshop for your own event, for more information.
