Do you have unwanted Art Supplies that you would like to donate?


We Want Your Art Supplies


The Scottish Design Exchange launch Scotland’s first art bank to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds reach their potential as artists and designers.


We are collecting Art Supplies of all varieties at The Scottish Design Exchange. From paper, paints, pens, textiles, tools etc. If you have it and think it can go to better use then we would love to hear from you.

SDX will look to ensure that all of the donated art materials will be accessed by those most in need. 

If you have a surplus of art supplies that you would like to donate you can drop them off at either our Edinburgh or Glasgow shops or at Bare Branding which will be one of the many hubs we link up with as a drop off point.


Anyone who is wishing to donate and needs further assistance please contact SDX at: or
