Tacoma artists Darcy and Richard Ryan “R.R.” Anderson opened Tinkertopia to take safe and clean scraps, junk, and miscellaneous things and transform them into materials for early education art classes, learning games, science experiments, crafts, costuming, and more. At their planet-conscious arts and crafts store they take donations of materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill – from watch cogs to mannequin limbs. 

Whether you’re a parent, a teacher, a maker, or a tinkerer, Darcy and R.R. want to help you explore the infinite opportunities for creativity in your junk drawer. Book their makerspace to tinker at Tinkertopia, or buy materials by bit or in bulk to create at home.
