Tayside Upcycling & Craft Centre is a Community Interest Company set up to champion the environmental benefits of upcycling.
Already affectionately nicknamed “The TUCC Shop”, this unique Centre showcases the creations of local Upcycler’s and Craftspeople in hosting 5 resident furniture Upcycler’s and a group of 6 amazing Craftspeople that work with a diverse range of materials including metal, wood and various fabrics. Now proud Stockists of No Seal Chalk Paint by Vintro Paint. Other products in the range available to order.
The Keynote resident Artisan is Sarah Peterson of the well established retail store, “Sarah’s Attic” at Sarah Peterson Design, a regular contributor to the BBC series “Money For Nothing” series. Sarah has moved her “Attic” into the TUCC shop.
The centre lets visitors discover the potential of just what it is possible to create with some imagination and skill.
As well as showcasing a wide range of items, the Centre also offers advice and the materials (paint, stencils, brushes etc) required for the general public to do their own upcycling.
With a range of workshops planned for later in the year, our number one aim is to reduce the amount of unwanted furniture, and fabrics, that end up in landfill every year.
We also offer volunteering opportunities for individuals that may have a challenging time learning new skills or finding suitable placements.
As well as retailing finished articles we are happy to advise or accept commissions from customers wanting to upcycle their own furniture as well as accepting donations of furniture that can be reimagined rather than being consigned to landfill.
Situated in beautiful Tayside, the Centre is located in the Carse of Gowrie on the A90 Perth to Dundee road and around halfway between Tayside’s two cities.
