Frequently Asked Questions
Are you open?
Currently, our in-person shop is closed, and in-person events and programs are cancelled. Out of care and concern for our community, our staff, and our volunteers, we will not be open to the public in our physical space until it is safe to do so. We are keeping a close eye on the ever-changing situation in Pittsburgh and have plans in place to eventually reopen. Please check back here and on social media for updates. We can’t wait to see you again!
Do you sell items online?
I have material donations. When can I donate my art supplies?
How can I help the organization while the shop is closed?
I’m looking for elastic and cloth to make face masks? Do you provide those materials?
I’m looking for summer programs? Do you offer any educational programming for kids?
Yes! We recently launched our Eco-Craftastic Summer program! This four-week virtual club is designed to minimize screen time for kids and adults while providing STEAM-based activities that foster hands-on skills, build confidence, and encourage participants to make a positive impact on their environment and their relationships. Materials for all four weeks of the club will be available for pickup in advance of your club’s start date. Read more about this program here!
I want to learn more about crafting with reused materials at home. Do you have any tutorials?

About our Organization
Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse is a non-profit that inspires creativity, conservation, and community engagement through reuse.
We operate a non-traditional art supply shop located at the intersection of Wilkinsburg, Homewood, and Point Breeze, where people can donate used art and craft supplies, as well as shop for these unique items all in the same location. We also facilitate hands-on creative programming that educates the public about the benefits of reuse for the environment, community, and self.
We see reuse as a vehicle for boosting self-confidence, learning new skills, and creating opportunity for all.
