Creating and ‘volunbeering’

SCRAP plans session at bar, two classes at shop

Denton’s School and Community Reuse Project — better known as SCRAP — isn’t just for kids.

The local nonprofit plans plenty of outreach for crafty grownups.

SCRAP Denton has two upcoming workshops planned for adults.

Emile Stewart, a Denton artist and the owner of Wildflower Art Studio on the online handmade market, will lead a workshop on mixed-media art from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the nonprofit’s storefront, 215 W. Oak St. The class costs $12, and materials are provided. Workshop attendees will learn the basics of material selection and use in making a mixed-media work of art.

SCRAP Denton will have a class on how to make a pinhole camera — that’s the simplest kind of camera, which takes photographs using a pinhole in a box, usually by manually uncovering and covering the pinhole — from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at the shop. The class costs $12 and includes materials.

In addition to classes, SCRAP is recruiting volunteers for “volunbeering.” From 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, SCRAP will have materials to assemble its popular “scrap kits” at Mulberry Street Cantina, 110 W. Mulberry St.

Volunteers will put the kits together over adult beverages. The kits are plastic tubs that contain bits of material for sale at the shop — fabric, office and craft supplies. The kits will be sold, to be used to create anything the user might imagine. They’re especially handy for children.

Advance registration and payment is required for workshops to reserve a spot in the classes. To register for the mixed-media workshop, visit To register for the pinhole camera workshop, visit

Reservations can also be made at the shop. For more information, call 940-808-1611. Hours are noon to 6 p.m. on Monday through Saturday.
