The Resource Exchange provides inspiration and reclaimed materials for
creative and environmentally resourceful making, teaching & living.

Our nonprofit shop, gallery, and workshop space promotes creative reuse, recycling, and resource conservation by diverting valuable materials from the waste stream and redirecting them to artists, builders, educators, and the general public.
