How can you help and get involved ?

We offer an annual membership of £20 that will help support our social enterprise by adding to our resources to cover utilities, consumables and volunteer expenses. Members will benefit from 10% discount on any fine art, craft or design work, made and sold in Riverside Studios above £50. Members can also enjoy 5% discount on all community art and craft workshops throughout the year. When our members join our online team through the website, they can look forward to notifications of local gallery openings, Riverside Studios events and offers, as well as access to link services provided within our community.


If you can donate jewellery/small items of furniture/ paint products/old coloured glass/material/clothes/threads/clay/glaze/paper/drawing materials, it would be most welcome.

If you would like to Volunteer, we would like to attract individuals with previous experience in all the above. If you are a student studying in the media field, we would also like to invite a volunteer to work with us on marketing and branding. Good practice and a chance to build a portfolio!

Our website is almost ready to go. It would be amazing to have some one to keep it updated and really play about with it and make it the best it can be for our community.

We would also love a volunteer to help us give the place a good going over once a week while we shall be doing our bit to keep our workshops clean and tidy every day.


If you have no experience in any of the above and would like to do a bit of research through volunteering with our workshops, please also get in touch. We are only too happy to encourage new areas of learning for all ages.


We have a shop within Riverside Studios and we are not always available to attend to it. It would be good to attract a volunteer with sales and customer service experience to work in the shop at weekends. If you have no experience and would like to gain some new ones, please also get in touch as it would be good to get people together to share skills.


If you are interested in volunteering and would wish more information,

please contact Ali on 07599852691 or to arrange a chat.
