Arts Parts is a one stop supply shop brimming with materials suitable for creative projects including art and craft, fashion and jewellery making, event decorations and more! Our supplies are perfect for teachers, artists, parents, community groups and crafty individuals and are available for purchase direct from our onsite Education Centre in South Hobart. 

We source our Arts Parts direct from Southern Tasmanian manafacturers and from our own Tip Shop driveway, diverting tones of bulk materials from landfill. 

By purchasing Arts Parts you're not only getting quality arts and crafts materials, but they're available at a fraction of a cost of buying them new. You're also assured that you're reducing your ecologial footprint and contributing to the global waste reduction movement. All Arts Parts are cleaned and deemed safe for use.

Materials available:

Stickers, Magnets, E-Waste, Fabrics, Leather, Beads, Buttons, Paper & Card, Paint, Plastic Bottle Tops, Plastic Parts, Tiles, Cardboard Tubes, Corks, Timber, Wool and assorted craft. New stock arriving monthly!

Please note Arts Parts stock will always change, we endeavour to keep it filled with goods but this is dependent on the ongoing delivery of supplies, which will vary with demand.

Arts Parts was developed with investment from the Resource Work Cooperative and financial support through the City of Hobart Waste Reducation Grant program in 2016.
