Art of Recycle's free crafting area is under the sea. The Craft Castle  is designed to look like a sand castle with towers adorned with sea shells and sea creatures and a tiled table surface for easy clean up. Our staff created the craft castle area to inspire people to use their imaginations and to think outside of the box when they are creating art.


Our crafting area is free to use , and there is no excuse for it not to be, everything is donated by the community by people just like you. It is stocked and cleaned and organized by volunteers and the people who utilize it. It is needed by many people, young and old.

Art of Recycle's Craft Castle is stocked with crafting materials that are free to use while you visit us. Everything in the craft castle is donated by our local community which is how we are able to keep our crafting area free.

  • Rule #8 - Pay for your purchases from the craft store before bringing items into the free crafting area.


  • Rule #9 - Our free crafting area and our magic puppet theater is not a playground. It is specifically and only to be used for crafting and puppet shows.




Sometimes our crafting area can be overwhelming and some children might have difficulty starting a project.


Art of Recycle volunteers have created puppet bodies from scraps of fabric that crafters can add on to. Crafters of all ages  can have fun gluing on googly eyes, beads, yarn hair, pipe cleaner arms and other accessories onto their puppets using the free materials from the craft castle. When they have completed making their puppets, children and adults can put on puppet shows in our magic puppet theater. The puppet theater is free to use during our hours of operation.  This is a perfect activity for first time crafters and small children, but enjoyed by all.
