Tackle your woodwork projects with us!

Join our annual membership programme.

As a part of our offering here at Rags to Riches and The Uphub, we offer accessible annual memberships for our community to make use of our workshop space and machinery. By signing up to our membership scheme, you’ll gain access to our woodwork workshop (with our other workshops opening at a later date!), 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.

Some experience is required to sign up as unfortunately we don’t have the capacity support those who are completely new to practical work. However, to join simply fill in the application form and our Facilities Manager Kenny will review your application and get in touch to discuss next steps.

If you have any questions regarding the membership, or would like to a book a visit prior to signing up, please contact Kenny at technicianr2r@govanhillbaths.com.
