Lancaster Creative Reuse Art Upcycling Programs

Lancaster Creative Reuse (LCR), a nonprofit, offers a donation-based art, craft and sewing supply store to connect community excess with those who can use it creatively. On-site classes and off-site educational outreach programs merge conservation, creativity and community need. The expanded open craft table is available to the public during store hours. LCR is also collaborating with the Long's Park Art Festival for Kids’ Art in The Park during Labor Day weekend. 

Youth craft sessions teach about conservation and reuse while cultivating creativity. Guided crafting sessions focus on how to reuse plastic and packaging products in response to new, stricter recycling standards in the U.S.

In addition to maintaining a self-sustaining creative reuse center, proceeds fund crafting sessions for adults with developmental needs, assembling employment and youth school kits for refugees resettling in the area and other local initiatives as needs arise. 


Location: 1865 Lincoln Highway E., Lancaster. Hours: Mon., Wed., Fri., 10 a.m.–2 p.m.; Thurs., 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; Sun., closed. For more information, call 717-617-2977, email director Susan Zeran at or visit
