College and university students studying art may find materials they need for their courses at bargain prices at the Crow Recycling Scrapstore.

Once students have paid the £10 membership there are a host of art supplies and craft supplies available at low prices, ideal for people who have to stretch their student loans to cover coursework materials.

Fabric, ribbon, tester paint pots, paper and card are among supplies which art students can use to create top grade art works.

The Scrapstore is open Monday to Thursday  9.30-3pm and Fridays 9.30am to 12 noon.  The Scrapstore is at Crow Recycling’s base at Orchard House, Sparkbrook Street, Hillfields, Coventry, CV1 5LB.
