Resource Work Cooperative in Hobart is set to open a new art supply shop as a new addition to their South Hobart Tip Shop.

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!  Designed for teachers, artists, and creative individuals, Arts Parts differs from the Tip Shop as it’s a space full of regularly stocked useful items that can be used to play, construct and decorate.

Arts Parts are perfect for teachers, artists, parents, community groups and crafty individuals and are available for purchase direct from the onsite Education Centre in South Hobart. Resource sources their Arts Parts direct from Southern Tasmanian manufacturers and from their 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 ecological footprint and contributing to the global waste reduction movement. Materials on offer comprise of production and manufacturing off-cuts and left-overs destined for landfill, which Resource has sourced and collected directly from Tasmanian businesses.

Arts Parts will be open 1 day per month and accessible via a membership program. For a one-off $5 fee customers will get exclusive shopping access, emailed information about stock levels, pricing and new additions prior to opening days.
