You may remember that I first introduced you to Arthouse Meath back in December when I gave away one of their rather delicious organic chocolates in my christmas give-away!
But now, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I wanted to draw your attention back to this inspiring social enterprise with a handpicked selection of their wonderful gifts that give back.
Based in Surrey, Arthouse Meath is a collective of artists with learning disabilities who create beautiful designs that are then developed into products for sale such as soaps, candles, chocolates, wrapping paper, cards, jewellery … the list goes on!
What I love most is that 100% of the sales revenue generated goes back into sustaining the enterprise and supporting the artists so that you know, whenever you buy anything from Arthouse Meath, you are genuinely making a difference to these men and women’s lives.
And, at the heart of this social enterprise, is a real sense of purpose – Arthouse Meath’s belief is that “feeling truly respected improves heath and wellbeing” which they achieve for their artists by creating better inclusion for all people living with disabilities.
To find out more, you can meet the artists here.
I have handpicked a selection of their valentine’s gifts below – to buy you can either shop online by following the links or, if you are based near Surrey, you can pop into their studio and shop which is open to the public 10am-4pm during the week.
I recommend going 10am-12pm or 2pm-4pm when the art sessions run every day so that you can see how the design process works!
