ARTHOUSE Meath is a charity that creates a marvellous array of gifts utilising the skills and talents of adults with learning disabilities, many of whom live with severe epilepsy and physical disabilities. ARTHOUSE Meath is part of the Meath Epilepsy Trust in Godalming, Surrey.
Over three million adults across Britain live with learning disabilities. Many feel the work they create is deemed of little value and often considered redundant. ARTHOUSE Meath highly regards the skills and abilities of all its artists. The work offers an insight into a way of seeing the world with humour and warmth and will inspire us all.
The aim of the trust is to give artists a sense of self-worth, and develop pride and confidence by showing the possibilities of what can be achieved. Money from the work sold goes back into the project for further development and the art house artists all receive incentive payments.
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
