Woodwork Bench Rentals
@ The Deep End

Tackle your woodwork projects with us!

As a part of our offering here at Rags to Riches provide monthly bench rentals for our community to make use of our workshop space and machinery.

When using our workshop you’ll have access to all our tools and equipment, you’ll also have access to our onsite facilitators who have a wealth of knowledge and skills to support you in your projects.

If you’re looking for taught classes visit our workshops page.

How it works

  1. Induction
    First off you’ll need a full induction to the space and tools. Check our current availability by emailing ragstoriches@govanhillbaths.com.
  2. Rent a bench
    Once you’ve completed an induction or attended a workshop where you’ve been inducted, you can book a single session to come in and use the workshop between 1-4pm on a Sunday for £26. Just drop us an email to check the date then book here.
  3. Book in monthly blocks to save
    Once you’ve completed an induction we’ll invite you to join our Wood Club. You’ll join our emailer about available dates and course, and you’ll save 40% by booking your bench rentals in blocks. This works out at just £5 an hour.
  4. Join us in the workshop
    And work independently on your own projects!

If you have any questions regarding the club, or would like to book a visit prior to signing up, please contact ragstoriches@govanhillbaths.com.
